Rogue Eagles Radio Control Airplane Club shows off warbirds

Eagle Point, Ore. -- The Rogue Eagles Radio Control Airplane Club took to the skies Saturday.

Plane enthusiasts showed off their remote control warbirds from WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Current military aircraft was also displayed.

"It's a beauty contest for our airplanes and the pilots get together and the crowd and they vote on which plane looks the best," Rogue Eagles RC Club Public Relations Officer Larry Cogdell said.

Thirty pilots participated. The only requirement for the contest was the plane had to be able to fly and land. 

 

The aircraft will be back at Agate Skyways Sunday from 9:00 to mid-afternoon. The event is free to the public.
