The Remote Controlled Airplanes exhibition was a new addition this year balloon festival, and proved to be a big draw for everyone there.
The rc planes were paraded through the excited crowd.
Only to be followed by this bi-winged beauty!
Here are some pilot/owners of these beautiful creations –
Bi-Wing Airplane – Pitts Python
Jets Airplane – Royal Air Force (Red Arrows)
The Red Arrows, officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, is the aerobatics display team of the Royal Air Force based at RAF Scampton. The team was formed in late 1964 as an all-RAF team, replacing a number of unofficial teams that had been sponsored by RAF commands.
The amount of detail that goes into these machines is incredible!
In flight images
Watching these planes zoom past you, is incredible!
It was generally agreed by those photographers in the in-field, that this craft was the hardest to photograph…
One wonder… The announcer was saying that this jet was buzzing by the field at 170 mph!!
And it still looks fast when grounded!
Also new, was the candy drop!
One of the traditional single winged airplanes, flew up twice, and dropped candy over the field, with children and parents eagerly rushing to gather as much as they candy as they could.
Personally, I hope they continue the rc airplane event/exhibit!
If you happen to know more info on these planes, I would like to update any info that is incorrect!
