Soar with the War Birds

Thursday, May 29, 2008

War Birds Over Arkansas will excite anyone who has ever enjoyed radio-controlled aircraft.

  Over the span of four days, June 12-15, Hammer Field will welcome any scale remote-controlled planes, from WW I, WW II, the Golden Era, and vintage aircraft to 1945.

  Aircraft from each era will be called to fly in rotation with others from the same era. The Dawn Patrol Squadron promises the flexibility to adjust the proceedings to fit the airplane types, so everyone will get plenty of flying.

  There is no landing fee, and no admission for spectators. This is a gathering just for fun!

  Fliers must be AMA members, but a special invitation is extended to IMAA members.

  There is space for camping on-site, but no power or water. There is a porta-potty provided. There will be a generator for some charging power, and a grill is available for cooking.

  A food vendor will be present Friday night and Saturday.

  For more information, contact Tom or Sue Hammer at (479) 253-7273.

  Hammer Field is a 10-acre flying site located on a 300-acre ranch. Onyx Cave Road goes north from U.S. Highway 62 East, just east of Passion Play Road. Stay on Onyx Cave Road about two and a half miles.

  Promoters, sponsors, and event personnel are not responsible for any personal injury or losses, and participants and spectators are welcome at their own risk.
