Chehalis Air Fair CL flying demonstration

Chehalis, Wash., Aug. 2, 2008

The Northwest Skyraiders Show Team brought lots of planes out to the Chehalis Airport to show control-line flying off to aviation enthusiasts gathered there. They followed up the flying with a barbecue at Bill Darkow's house in Tenino. Here are some photos of the event. All photos by Bill Darkow.

The Skyraiders had lots of interesting planes on hand, including a smoke-trialing P-40 and a banner-towing Ultimate Bipe.
