Vette’ City Big Bird
Big Birds will take to the skies over South Central KY this weekend, but these aren’t our feathered friends. Instead, these ‘birds’ have propellers, engines and a fuel tank, plus some of them can reach speeds up to 200 mph with the help of a guy on the ground with the radio controls! It’s the Southern KY Model Aero Club’s Vette’ City Big Bird ‘09 event with giant scale models that will wow anyone fascinated with flight. It’s non-stop flying all day until the action winds down Sunday afternoon around 3 p.m. Admission is just $5 for spectators with children 10 and under free! Bring a lawn chair and an umbrella, get comfortable and prepare for take off! For more information, visit www.skymacrc.com or call 270-590-0943.
