Model Aircraft Day

The model aircraft flying day held on 25th September was the final event of the 2011 season. With the weather fine and winds within acceptable limits, the Chichester and District Model Aircraft Club members kept the enthusiastic visitors, particularly the young, entertained with four and a half hours of continuous and skilful flying. The models were of many types and sizes from 1.2 to over 2.5 metres wing span, propeller, ducted fan, pure jet and gliders and helicopters both scale, semi scale all radio controlled created a very varied display.

Aerobatics featured highly, an extremely agile smoke trailing helicopter set the scene, and two Yak 54s exhibited showed the pilot skills with splendid performances; all the “pilots” showed superb flying skills with extreme manoeuvres. It was however the two jet aircraft which created really high levels of interest with high speed low level passes, aerobatic and a real jet aircraft sound. One of the last models displayed was a splendid scale Lancaster all that was missing was the sound of four Merlins. A successful day enjoyed by all.
