Club offers radio-controlled air show

The Rogue Eagles RC Club is sponsoring a charity air show featuring radio control aircraft. The two-hour show will be presented at Agate Skyways east of White City, beginning at noon both Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 25-26. The gates will open at 11 a.m.

More than 25 acts will feature WWI and WWII scale-model fighters, electric planes, jets, drones and gliders.

Kids will be treated to candy air-dropped on the runway from above.

Visitors can try their skill flying an RC flight simulator aircraft and a raffle will be held to win RC aircraft and other prizes. Food and drinks will be available.

There is no admission charge but donations will be requested at the gate, with a suggested donation of $5 per person. All of the donations will go to the Children’s Miracle Network to provide health resources for children through Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.

To reach the air show site, follow Highway 140 about three miles east from White City, turn south on East Antelope Road and follow it about one mile to the entrance of Agate Skyways.

The Rogue Eagles RC Club is more than 50 years old and one of the largest RC clubs in Oregon chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), with more than 160 members.
