Remote Controlled Airplanes – CC Balloon Festival

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.

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.

Nothing but clear skies…

It was generally agreed by those photographers in the in-field, that this craft was the hardest to photograph…

Coming in for a landing…

One wonder… The announcer was saying that this jet was buzzing by the field at 170 mph!!

A crowd of interested viewers.

And it still looks fast when grounded!

Also new, was the candy drop!

Candy drop time!!

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!

The Balloons of CC Festival

I regret that I only got to spend Saturday afternoon at the Festival, but I did get to see the various balloons in action!

Inflation, the good kind!

A common terminology mistake, you do not NOT “Blow Up” balloons… That is not a good thing, because there is nothing left, and someone might get hurt…

Balloons must be Inflated!

A river of balloons.

After being rolled out, fans are used to start the ‘cold’ inflation –

Once the pilot feels the time is right, the ‘hot’ inflation begins –
