Model Aviation day Fly-In attracts 40 Participants

Our annual National Model Aviation day event at the McCracken Aerodrome is now complete.  CD Mitch Robbins ran the event and held some informal competitions which were a great success.  Several pilots competed in a spot landing competition that ran throughout the day.  The participants and spectators really enjoyed the competition.  Winners for the day were as follows:

  • Jim Katz – Demonstration Pilot
  • Benton Griffin – Spot Landing
  • Todd Griffin – Spot Landing Judges Choice (he did it with a discus launch glider)
  • Camden Helms – Peoples Choice
  • Camden Helms – Youngest Pilot
  • Ed Apolinar – Oldest Pilot
  • Camden Helms – Raffle Winner

The crowd was also excited to see a noon demonstration of high speed flight piloted by club member Jim Katz.  Jim flew 3 different types of planes in various categories.   A traditional and delicious CAM lunch was prepared and served by Bobby Helms, Billy Pigg, and Luann McCracken along with the help of others.  The club would like to thank Mitch Robbins, Jim Katz, and everyone else who helped to make the Fly-In a great success.
