Airplane Field

After I went to the bank today, I drove to a nearby park, which has a radio-controlled airplane field. It’s basically a flat grassy field with a mini airstrip and mini taxiways. It’s usually more busy on the weekends, of course, but there were a couple hobbyists around today, flying their tiny planes and jets. Some of them weren’t so tiny, like this F/A-18 model I saw today which looked almost as big as the pilot. The flight area is a little small, and these planes end up just doing an oval around the airfield with the occasional vertical loop. There’s an area you can see the planes up close, where the pilots fix their planes and attach the wings and propellers and whatnot. I don’t know if I really have any interest in flying one of these things but I still like to go to this place every now and then.
