Scale RC Model Warbird Event

Radio Control (Scale) Model Airplanes.
I love them. Especially the Warbirds. The local RC model club in Lubbock, Texas, held an event this weekend up in the neighboring town of Abernathy, Texas, when it was held on that communities airport. These are some of the pictures that I took today. This years event is a two day affair concluding on Sunday, August 9, 2009.

There were some actual jet turbine models such as a A-4 Skyhawk, Mig-15s, F-15s. The regular bunch of World War two fighters such as the P-51s,P-47s, F-4U Corsairs, F6F Hellcats, a Spitfire. A pair of German Stukas that did an actual bomb drop. There were even some World War One airplanes there as well.

UPDATE: August 14, 2009. I have uploaded several videos of the B-17 and B-24 flying together at my page. Follow the link there (
