Folks, this is indeed a VERY unique and special RC Model Aircraft !

This model was made from the molds used to construct the model Saab 35 Draken used in the final scenes of the 1990 movie "Firebirds", starring Nicholas Cage, Tommy Lee Jones and Sean Young: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_Birds)

Please join us as we watch the MAIDEN FLIGHT of a piece of RC History !
Saab 35 Draken from the 1990 movie "Firebirds" - MAIDEN FLIGHT! (6 min 39 sec)

The molds for this model have been stored in a location in Arizona since the movie was made, and were acquired by a group of RC enthusiasts about a year and a half ago: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...b-Draken-build

Master modeler Rodger Hecht was contacted by one of the people involved, and Rodger built this model from those ORIGINAL molds.....meaning, this is the FIRST TIME one of these models has flown since the movie was made !

Please enjoy watching this HISTORIC flight, and forgive me of any wind noise in the background...
