Lee County- The Airmasters Model Airplane Club held their Annual Spring Fly-In in Lee County. Flyers from all over the southeast were present to show off their remote control savvy in the air.

There were aircrafts of all shapes and sizes for a sport that interests many people. "Most people usually have some kind of fascination with airplanes all the way from the time they were young all the way up to the old ones. We have a couple of members in their 70's and 80's still flying," says Airmaster Club member William Clark.

Anyone interested in flying model planes should head out to the Airmasters Model Airplane Club on the weekends to begin trying to fly.
