Rogue Eagles RC club to host charity air show
The Rogue Eagles remote control airplane club will hold an air show benefitting the Children's Miracle Network Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 16-17, at Agate Skyways.
The shows start at noon both days, but gates open at 11 a.m.
The show will feature numerous remote control planes and their pilots from across the region. There will be World War I and II fighters, electric planes and jets, gliders and aerobatic planes. A large RC plane will end the show by dropping several pounds of candy on the runway for children.
