The Tulsa Glue Dobbers Radio Airplane Club is holding a free Fly-In this Saturday to benefit the Wounded Warrior’s Project.
This is the second year for the event, which is held out at the Glue Dobbers Airfield located on Lynn Lane (177th E. Avenue) between 21st and 31st Streets in East Tulsa.
Several club members are retired military, including the club President.
They believe that being a part of the project is a way to give back to those who have served for our country.
Model airplanes run in size and shape, from the basic beginners to planes that can cost over $5,000 to build.
While KRMG was out there, a model airplane sporting Mickey and Minnie Mouse was flying loops and it was quite impressive.
All types of planes will be at the Fly-In for people to come out and see.
There will also be a flight simulator onsite in an air conditioned trailer, for people to fly any type of airplane, from WW II bombers to modern aircraft.
Donations of any amount will be accepted with all the proceeds to benefit Wounded Warriors.
Fun Fly events are scheduled from noon until 5 p.m.
This fly-in is part of other events going on Saturday across the nation sponsored by the Academy of Model Aeronautics.
Nationwide the group gave over $76,000 to Wounded Warriors last year.
Food and drinks will also be on site.
Covered bleachers will also be provided, and everyone is encouraged to bring lawn chairs and their own food as well.
Parking is also free at the event.
