Goshen airport to host RC aircraft show

This is one of the remote-controlled aircraft on display at the 2018 air show.

GOSHEN — The Goshen Municipal Airport will host the annual Air Supremacy over Goshen Show for the third time next month.

The giant-scale remote-controlled aircraft event is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on July 11 to 13 at the airport south of the city. More than 250 museum-quality aircraft with wingspans of 80 inches or more will soar through the skies controlled by more than 100 craftsmen from all over the Midwest.

The show will feature aircraft from World War I, the so-called Golden Age of Flight and World War II, as well as classics like the Piper Cub and even military-style turbine jets, according to the announcement from the City of Goshen. Food and hobby vendors will be located at the airport during the shows.

“The Goshen Municipal Airport has become the home of our event, which each year brings record numbers of pilots from around the Midwest,” event co-founder and coordinator R.J. Monroe said in the announcement. “Our airshow also brings spectators from all ages, so come to our show, bring a lawn chair or a blanket, sit back and enjoy the flights.”

Admission is $5 per person, while children under 12 are free with a paid adult; veterans and active-duty service members can enter free of charge. Visitors can follow the signs to the U.S. 33 entrance to the airport, just a few miles south of the Walmart Supercenter.
