Airshow Extravaganza

Dozens of airplanes took flight in the Mid-Ohio Valley Saturday, but it's not the kind of plane you took on your last vacation or business trip.

The Blennerhassett Area Radio Control Club had it's annual "Airshow Extravaganza," but the organization made this year a little different by making it into a charity event.

Food and donations were collected for some local charities.

One BARCC member described flying model planes as a life-long hobby.

"When I was younger I always went by a shop and they had a big remote control spitfire in the window, and I just loved to watch that thing, and I never saw it fly or anything, but I just love airplanes," Rob Maas said.

    Reminds me of when I use to professionally fly paper airplanes. "Dozens of airplanes took flight in the Mid-Ohio Valley Saturday, but it's not the kind of plane you took on your last vacation or business trip." Are you sure about that WTAP? Because I don't remember having a vacation or a business trip. I just can't stop flipping these burgers in this bad economy to stop and play with a $100 airplane. If I did take an airplane, it probably would have to be a remote control one, because I'm broke.
