The Uncivil War

My Dad has always loved airplanes. When he was younger he had his pilots’ license and would fly real planes, but since he’s had a family he hasn’t had the time or money to invest in his love of flying. He has recently gotten back into flying model planes and joined a group of other fliers.  This morning they had their “Uncivil War Event”.  Basically around fifty guys fly their planes all at once and try to crash into each other and bring the others down. It was a great family event for a Saturday Morning.

The most memorable thing that happened is that the streamers for the general planes got caught on my Dad’s plane. So when he took off, he was like the soldier who grabs the flag and keeps coming when the first man is killed.  It was pretty exciting.  Check out some of the pics. 😀
