2nd Annual Wonder of Flight Air Show: Sherwood Island State Park

Posted by Martha Lord on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 2:07 PM

Drones, radio controlled helicopters, aerobatic planes and gliders will be displayed and flown in the 2nd Annual Air Show at Sherwood Island State Park, on Saturday, June 3 with opening ceremonies beginning at 10 AM and concluding at 2 PM. Open and Free to the Public.

The event will be conducted as part of the Trails Day by the members of the Country Squires Modelers, a group of over 100 men, women and children who have been flying at Sherwood Island for over 45 years.  Members range in age from 9 to 90, and include retired airline pilots, professionals, students, tradesmen and homemakers.  Young people find the sport particularly engaging, and they are often very adept at it because of their computer game skills.  As one parent of a new member recently related, "this has been a wonderful experience for our son.  It has him outdoors, and he's learning so much about science and engineering while satisfying his computer interests."
