Warbirds Over Whatcom

Written By: Peter Butschek - Apr• 25•15

Bell Air RC Flyers will present “War Birds Over Whatcom” on Saturday, July 25th, and Sunday, July 26th, 2015, at the club’s flying field north of Bellingham. The event runs from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday with OPEN flying on Sunday.


2015’s event features radio controlled scale flying models of military aircraft spanning all the wars through the most modern jet fighters and bombers. Many of the models have been built over many painstaking hours, either from kits, or, in some cases, from original plans and a supply of raw materials. Other models are purchased as factory built, almost ready to fly.

The event is FREE to the public, but any donations for the food bank (in the form of nonperishable food items) are appreciated.

Bell Air R/C Flyers events are a good way to introduce young and old alike to the world of flying. The kids will thrill to see Snoopy as the Red Barron pilot his flying dog house to look for evil aircraft to shoot down. They may even get to see a flying lawnmower! Spectators with cameras will find a day of constant photo opportunities.

Model flying will continue on Sunday and include various types of sport and aerobatic aircraft in addition to the military models.

Directions To Bell Air

The event is FREE to the public, but any donations for the food bank (in the form of nonperishable food items) are appreciated.

P.S. I built this trailer to be able to pull with a normal car, not sure of the weight, but loaded up with gear the tongue weight isn’t more then 70lbs. Most cars have a max tongue weight of 100lbs. I’d like to sell this to someone in the club, but if you know anyone that may be interested, let them know it is available.
