Warbirds Over Alvin 2015

by Benny Behrens   October 9, 2015

Saturday October 3, 2015 Alvin RC Model Airplane Association, Alvin, TX had their Annual Warbird Fly-In. Cash prizes were given for Scratch/Kit WWI, WWII, Post WWII, Best ARF and Best Overall on a fun basis with judging by the registered pilots.

Weather was great being clear and cool with mild winds somewhat down the runway. Registration was light with only 12 pilots but the quality of planes and flying was great. Alvin did have a fair turn out of visitors and spectators with lots of great airplanes, flying and of course great hamburgers.

Anyone that did not visit the event missed a great raffle with three ARF’s given out along with some other prizes. The grand raffle prize was a 50cc Aeroworks Yak 54 donated by a member – what a prize for the lucky winner!

CD Ken White and his volunteers did a great job keeping the event moving with lots of safe flying, pilot prizes and good food.
