RC planes take flight in Dayton
Nearly 70 radio-controlled planes took flight Friday and Saturday at the annual Jetero Southeast Texas Warbird Rally in Dayton and it couldn’t have happened on a better weekend for the flyboys.
The event has rapidly become one of the premiere events in the Gulf Coast area for RC enthusiasts and it’s easy to see why.
“We had great weather and few crashes,” said Contest Director Michael Jackson.
Jackson, who started the event in 2012, has also been the director all four years and has watched his baby grow.
“Throughout the year, we go out to other events and promote ours here and I think that’s what has helped us to grow,” he said.
