Are you old enough to remember the model airplanes before radio control planes?
Come on out tomorrow, Saturday, January 25 and see Fly by Wire demonstrations There may be some "dog fights" as well as standard control wire flight. CLICK HERE to view the entire e-mail blast with full information including times and admission rate:
Control-line flight is a type of model airplane flight which is not controlled by remote control, but by two 60-foot steel wires. This type of model was the type of hobby aircraft many of today's older adults grew up with and a type of aircraft that most of today's children have never seen fly.
The control-line flying will be featured from around 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the tarmac outside the Wings' hangar. Weather conditions determine whether we can fly the planes. Strong wind prevents the planes from flying without damage.
There is an entry fee of $10 for individuals 13 and older for the museum and activities. Children ages 5 to 12 cost $5; children under 5 are free. Active annual memberships and veterans are also free.
Bring the family out. This is truly a unique event. The Wings Over Miami Air Museum is located on the grounds of the Kendall - Tamiami Executive Airport, 14710 SW 128th St, Miami, FL 33196, (305) 233-5197, Museum Hours: Wednesday - Sunday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
