Gee let’s build our own jet fighter shall we?

The 13th annual Warbirds over the Rockies event was held Thursday-Saturday in Arvada,Colorado. Aviators from all over brought their scale-model radio-controlleded aircraft to a model airplane park just east of Highway 93 near Golden, Colorado. It appears that development will erase this little oasis from the world soon enough.

A brand new neighborhood sits just behind the airpark. For now it’s safe. Grown men and women build jet airplanes that sound a lot like the real thing.

Here’s a West German F-86 model in flight.
