The Red Deer area will get its own air show this year — a mini one.

The Central Alberta Radio Fun Flyers are putting on the “full-size air show with miniature aircraft,” Jon From of the club.

Starting at 1 p.m. on July 27, From said the show should be two to three hours long.

The show takes place 7.5 km east of Hwy 2 on McKenzie Road, on the north side of the road.

From said it should be easy to spot with plenty of signs being erected by members of the radio control model plane club, to aid those trying to find the show.

About 15 to 20 pilots will put on the 30 to 35 acts ranging from vintage remote control plane from the 1930s to scale Second World War fighter planes and bombers to aerobatic aircraft, large-scale aircraft and novelty acts including a candy bomber, unleashing a payload of sweets, and a witch on a broomstick.

The show costs $5 for anyone age 12 and over at the gate, and free for those under 12. Half of the proceeds from the gate go to the Red Deer Youth and Volunteer Centre. There will also be a concession on site.
