Check-out the annual Radio Control Moel Airplane Show and Fly-In at the Yuma Aeromodeler’s airfield located at Blaisdell, north of Yuma this weekend.

The show will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. A fly contest and hobby swap meet will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Airplane modelers will bring their radio-controlled aircraft from as far as Phoenix, Lake Havasu and El Centro, according to event chairman Dave Bartholomew. Organizers are anticipating jets, helicopters, scale aircraft and many static display aircraft.

 Boy Scout Troop 53 will offer food concessions.

 Spectators are invited to watch the air show. A $5 per vehicle donation will be requested.

 The field is located five miles north of Yuma, off Highway 95, at mile marker 33.

 Yuma Aeromodelers is a group of about 150 radio-control enthusiasts affiliated with the Academy of Model Aeronautics. The club promotes model aircraft activities by building and flying model aircraft and teaching new members to fly them.
