Alvin RC - 27th Big Bird Fly In

by Benny Behrens   April 24, 2017

On Saturday April 15, 2017 the Alvin Radio Control Model Airplane Association (ARCMAA) held its 27th annual Big Bird Fly In and 13th annual Swap Meet. The weather was very questionable up to two days before the event. Somehow Alvin RC got lucky – the weather cleared two days before the event and the ground dried and weather turned out perfect. The event was well attended with about 24 pilots registered along with many local RC visitors from local clubs and local spectators. Alvin was honored to have a reporter from the Alvin Sun visit our event. He was very impressed with the quality of planes and flying skills and is in the process of writing a front page article for the paper.

The entire event was a success and very well done, ran very smoothly and safely.

Airplane entries were a complete cross section of airplanes in our hobby from large scale cubs to large warbirds and everything in between.

Thanks to all of the pilots, visitors, spectators and all of the club volunteers that made this event a success.
