Alvin - 29th Annual Big Bird Fly In

by Benny Behrens   April 23, 2019

On Saturday April 20, 2019 the Alvin Radio Control Model Airplane Association (ARCMAA) held its 29th annual Big Bird Fly In and 15th annual Swap Meet. The weather was absolutely perfect – clear, very mild breeze and cool – don’t know how Fred Daniels, CD found the contact info for Mother Nature but hope he saves it. The club had close to 20 pilots registered along with local RC visitors from local clubs and local spectators. With the weather as perfect as it was the pilots should have gotten all the flying they wanted.

The entire event was a success and very well done. It ran very smooth, no safety issues and no crashes that I witnessed.

Airplane entries were a complete cross section of airplanes in our hobby from large scale cubs to large warbirds and everything in between.

The first photo below is a group shot of some of the pilots, CD Fred Daniels, some of the airplanes entered and me. The second photo is Alvin RC’s hard working dedicated Hamburger Team responsible for “the best hamburgers in Texas”!!!

Thanks to all of the pilots, visitors, spectators and all of the club volunteers that made this event a success. Benny Behrens, AVP Houston area
