Come join the 95th Squadron Radio Control Model Aircraft Club for its 10th Annual “Warbirds Over the Roanoke” model airplane fly-in event on Saturday, June 1, at the Club’s flying field in Gaston. Flying will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 4 p.m.

There is no admission charge for spectators. Lunch will be available for purchase on site, and soft drinks and water will be available throughout the day.

Skilled radio control pilots from the Virginia-North Carolina region will demonstrate their expert flying skills throughout the day with models representing all eras of war-time aviation. 

For the first time this year, pilots have been invited to bring and fly their control line Warbirds. 

A complete ready-to-fly control line airplane will be raffled along with a 50/50 raffle. The winner need not be present.  

A trainer will be available so that attendees can fly on a buddy box with an accomplished pilot on the main transmitter. 

There will be flight demos and an opportunity to view the planes up close and ask the owners questions about their models.

This is a family-friendly event, so bring lawn chairs and plan to spend the day.

The Club field is just off Highway 46 in Gaston just west of the Interstate 95 176 exit. Turn onto the access road next to Redwine’s Parts. The entrance is marked with a 95th Squadron sign on Hwy. 46.
