BREMEN — The Sky Knights – a Bremen based model aircraft club – will hold its annual fly-in on Sunday at the groups flying field just south of Bremen at 5593 Fir Road.
Gates for the event will open at 9 a.m. there is no charge and the public is invited to attend at any time during the day. The group would like to urge anyone planning to attend to bring a canned food item to donate to the Marshall County Food Bank.
There will be food available at the fly in featuring sweet corn, sausage and a drink available for $5.
A variety of large and small remote controlled gas and electric powered model aircraft will be exhibited and flown. A key attraction will be Chuck Hamilton of Bremen and Lee Watkins of South Bend simultaneously flying their scale replicas of the World War II British Spitfire, a key fighter aircraft used in the war over Europe.
Over 50 aircraft are expected to be on hand from clubs around the area. Modern, WW I and WWII scale aircraft will be flown and shown.
