Members of the Western Port Model Aircraft Club are gearing for their second open day at the airfield at 360 The Esplanade, Crib Point, Sunday 21 April.

Model aircraft of all types, sizes and styles: from helicopters, jets, civilian and military type aircraft all based on the real thing and sounding just as good are flown from the airfield.

The club’s 100 members have varying ages and experience levels, some holding world records and one, a junior, is a world champion in pylon F3D racing.

They will be assisted by members of model aircraft clubs from around the state.

As well as aircraft on display, members of other radio control hobbies will showcase and demonstrate tanks, cars, crawlers and boats.

Community groups, including the CFA, HMAS Cerberus, Victorian Maritime Centre, classic car clubs, motorcycle clubs, Western Port Coast Guard and the Balnarring Scout Group will participate on the day. This event is supported and sponsored by the Balnarring and District branch of the Bendigo Bank.

The activities will run 10am-4pm.

Other special interest groups participating on the day include Victorian Armoured Radio Control Club, Illawong Model Boat Group, Victorian Maritime Centre, and South Eastern Radio Controlled Car Club.
