Model Flyers Hold Longview Fly-in

The skies above Longview were filled with dive bombers, acrobatic planes and even a "flying lawnmower" as part of an annual show. It was the East Texas model flyers associations annual "spring fly-in" in Longview.

Modelers from all over East Texas and Louisiana come to the event each year to promote their sport. First timers young and old were allowed to practice fly some of the models, many of which cost several thousand dollars. Numerous clever designs are always on display at the fly-in, and if you missed today, there will be another event in the fall.
