Timelords, feed your eyes. This convocation of radio control bombers and other military aircraft, and armored tanks, scaled down but properly mobilized, serves up such a vision of the American Imperium as could make Baudrillard blush. Squint, and you may see reenactments of battles past. Clear your mind, and you're looking at a vision of the future. [Organizer's description:] Annual B-17 gathering and Big Bird featuring large radio control models flying and on display. You will be able to watch some of the finest models in the country fly from our covered observation deck as well as walk around and examine them close up in the pit area. Spectators are encouraged to talk to the pilots and learn more about this fascinating hobby. We will also have the Texas Armor group on site with their 1/16 scale radio control tanks doing battle. The 6th Cavalry group is planning on having some full sized WWII vehicles on site for display as well. Concessions are available on site.
