A great airshow with monstrous B-52 bombers, blazing F-18s, and purring Harvards soared through Windsor last weekend, but a micro-scale airshow is about to take place starting this Saturday.
The Sun Parlor R/C Flyers Club is an organization for model aircraft enthusiasts, and each year they put on a Model Air Show just outside of Windsor.
The club, with 80 members, has been in operation since the 1960’s, has their own facilities including a mini-runway and are inviting YOU to a free event this Saturday and Sunday.
Pilots fly radio controlled propeller planes and jets of all shapes and sizes, they simulate combat, drop candy and even guide radio-controlled parachutes back down to earth.
Check out this YouTube video for some of the action:
The event starts at 11am, but the model airshow itself runs between noon and 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday at the Sun Parlor Tower Field, 4819 Concession 4 N, Amherstburg, ON. Check this out on our Events Calendar for a Map and detailed directions.
