On Sunday, July 28th the Indianapolis Radio Control Modelers will take to the sky for the 8th Annual Tim Mills Memorial Air Show in conjunction with the Morristown Derby Days weekend. From 1-5pm radio controlled planes of all sizes and types will entertain the crowd with loops, rolls, and spins while performing a virtual dance in the sky. Aircraft as small as 2 feet weighing less than a pound to giant gasoline powered aircraft over 12 feet in wing span and weighing up to 55 pounds will perform. There will also be radio controlled helicopters, parachutists and racing planes that approach 150mph. Sport planes and scale models of World War I and World War II aircraft will also be flying for the crowd.
The Club will have a booth, planes and a radio control aircraft computer simulator on display at the Derby Days Tent on Friday July 26th and Saturday July 27th. The Club will also have an aviation themed float in the Saturday parade. The club has about 70 members and has been in the Indianapolis and Eastside area for nearly 60 years. They have been flying out of their current Blue River Air Park field just west of Morristown for the last 13 years. Members range in age from 6 to 86 and all have a passion for building, flying and talking about aircraft of all types.
The club members will also have several trainer aircraft available for the public; both young and old, to try their hand at becoming a student pilot and try flying a radio controlled plane.
Soft drinks and snacks will be available for purchase and admission is only $3 per adult (children under 10 are free) for an afternoon of fun and entertainment for the entire family. Bring your lawn chair and enjoy the show. The club field, also known as the Blue River Air Park is located on Blue River Road about 1 mile south of US-52. Blue River Road is on the west side of Morristown and just east of the Blue River Bridge on US-52. Further information about the event and other club activities is available on the club website at www.indyrcmodelers.com or by calling Steve Woods at 317-460-9985 or stop by the Club booth at Derby Days.
