Models in flight at Broomfield

BROOMFIELD will again echo to the sound of aircraft on May 13, this time of the model variety, when Montrose Model Aero Club holds its spring fly-in.

The event will take place at the club’s flying site on Broomfield playing fields where radio-controlled planes will fly between 10.30am and 4pm, weather permitting.

There are plans to encourage newcomers with dual control training equipment so flights can be undertaken with supervision by an experienced pilot.
