Photos & Winners 12 O’Clock High RC Warbirds

The 12 O’ Clock High RC Warbird is another great event brought to us by Frank Tiano for aircraft that were flown in the timeframe between 1914 and 1954. The event is not a competition but one of the best fly ins at one of the best flying facilities there is. A great event that every warbird pilot can enjoy. From December 8 – 10 the flying went from 8:30am till 5:30pm daily.
