Ra­dio Con­trol Club’s air show is Satur­day

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - OUT & ABOUT - STAFF RE­PORT

The Chat­tanooga Ra­dio Con­trol Club will hold its sixth an­nual Siskin Air Show on Satur­day, Sept. 16, from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. at Sum­mit Field, 4223 Old Wood­land Drive in Oolte­wah.

At the high-fly­ing event, club mem­bers put on an im­pres­sive air show with ra­dio- con­trolled planes, high- per­for­mance jets, he­li­copters, quad­copters and more. Guests will be amazed at the grav­ity-de- fy­ing stunts per­formed by large-scale mod­els, and at tur­bine-pow­ered jets that roar past at speeds up to 170 mph.

Kids and adults can also take a turn fly­ing a ra­dio- con­trolled plane along­side a club mem­ber in the buddy box.

“We are ex­cited to part­ner with Siskin Chil­dren’s Institute for our air show sup­port­ing chil­dren with spe­cial needs and their fam­i­lies. It’s al­ways fun in­tro­duc­ing a new gen­er­a­tion of kids to the hobby of fly­ing ra­dio-con­trolled planes,” says Tony Bosco, club mem­ber and event or­ga­nizer.

To make the event more con­ducive to a fam­ily out­ing, ad­mis­sion is charged by the car­load. For $ 10, fam­i­lies can pack as many peo­ple as is safe into their cars to at­tend the show for one group price.

Snacks and drinks will be avail­able on-site. Bring cash since credit cards can not be ac­cepted.
