Spectators awestruck by model planes

April 24, 2004

Lee County- Pilots showed off their radio-controlled aircraft during the 4th annual Airmasters Model Airplane Club Show.

Crowds watched in awe as planes spiraled and hovered in the air.

"You have all different kinds of airplanes from vintage airplanes, war birds, aerobatics, jets, helicopters pretty anything you can think of," says Fly In Coordinator William Clark.

One of the highlights of the show was watching pilots fly their jet models, which are equipped with real jet engines and reach speeds of more than 200 miles per hour.
