Today starts one of the best WW1 giant scale events in the Northeast. The Long Island Skyhawks know how to have fun, and this RC vintage event is a must-attend for anyone’s RC bucket list.
Just a hint of what’s to come. This was taken today from the trenches by Michael C. Gross!
(above) Mike’s Nieuport 28!
Awards and Prizes are just frosting on the trench cakes as there’s a big BBQ and oh yea, one of the best flying field to be found in the Tri-State area. If you want to fly your WW1 aeroplane and have the best time of your life doing it, take the Port Jefferson Ferry or leave early and head down the L.I. Expressway, it will be well worth it! MAN will be there too so watch for photos coming soon!
Balloon bust, Bomb Drop and spot landings are all on the mission list, plus this is a great way to practice if you are planning on attending the 50th Rhinebeck Jamboree in September! Most of the Skyhawks are planning on going! So get a head start this weekend!
