Model plane enthusiasts from as far away as Florida came to Albemarle County Saturday to take part in Day One of the Rivanna Radio Control Club's Fly-In 2007
Model helicopters, World War I biplanes and War Birds were on display at Keswick's Milton Air Field. Some of the fancier model planes were grounded though, because of gusty winds.
"It's been fun. [The wind] hasn't really stopped anybody from flying, but they haven't gotten out maybe their favorite planes," said Club flight instructor Cam White.
Organizers expect much calmer winds for Sunday's show, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4p.m. They promise some much bigger model planes as well as a model jet which can hit top speeds of 200 miles per hour.
