RC Warbirds Over Port Clinton

Over the weekend, August 23-24, RC Warbirds Over Port Clinton dazzled the spectators at Carl R. Keller Field at the Erie-Ottawa International Airport. Pilots and supporters from around Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Canada took to the field for awesome displays of aeronautics.
