Warbirds Over NC, October 30th, Rocky Mount NC

It's that time of year again... the Tarheel R/C Flyers is hosting Warbirds Over NC. It's an any power, any size, any war, warbird event. If it served a military purpose at some time, bring it! I'm talking to you, ParkZone T-28 pilots! The event is held at eastern NC's PREMIERE flying sites... our runway is 800' x 85' with clear approaches on both sides.

There will be food and plenty of raffle prizes. Please come join us for a great day of warbird flying! Directions, maps to our field, and flyers are on our website, which is linked above. Hope to see you there!

The 109 has made it over a year, and it has been in 17 pieces, I counted!! I didn't think it could be counted as a "real" warbird, but after I passed the Top Gun Skyraider at FFT this year - it's real enough for me. So, mike you saying I can wiggle the sticks on the p-40??? Or, dare I say it, the SKEETER! GASP!!!! !

That's great! I'm hoping we have a HUGE turnout. I'm not going to have room for all of the planes I want to bring!

Yup, I offloaded them last night from my camera but they have not made it to the website; I will do that here in the next few days. I'll also update this thread. We had a great time, shame on those that didn't show up!

Here's a few of mine. I have more to sort through, but wanted to get a few up to prove that there was an event. Problem is, I had so much fun that I forgot to take pictures sometimes
