MODEL PLANE ENTHUSIASTS TAKE TO THE SKIES SATURDAY

The sky above the Sokol Park air field was buzzing Saturday, filled with pint-sized planes.

Model airplane enthusiasts from the West Alabama Aero Modelers were there to show off their model plane piloting skills.

“It’s not all about the flying,” said member Chacy Dubose. “It’s really about camaraderie and fellowship and people you know.”

Anyone wanting to learn more about model airplanes is welcome to join, Dubose said. Club members are always welcoming newbies under their wings, teaching them to fly and keep their planes in tip-top shape.
