Warbirds Over Johnson Space Center 2018

by Benny Behrens   May 2, 2018

On Saturday April 28, 2018 I had the privilege to visit Johnson Space Center RC Club’s (JSCRCC) Warbird Fly-In. The event was a great success with approximately 38 pilots registered.

JSCRCC has somewhat of a unique situation in that their field is located within the fence line of JSC and to reach the field/event pilots and spectators have to pre-register enough in advance to allow security time to clear them. Their security folks did a great job in hassle free handling of the security checks and it did not appear to be any real burden or restriction on attendance. The security folks were very helpful and courteous at the entrance gate. In addition to the registered pilots many visitors/spectators were in attendance. Weather for the event was perfect with wind right down the runway. As with all events volunteers are critical and JSCRCC’s crew did a great job.

There were many, many different type military aircraft from small electrics to large scale WWI and WWII combat aircraft. Pilots came from as far away as Fort Worth and Austin.

After 911 JSCRCC stopped having events for several years due to tighter security policies but three years ago JSCRCC decided to try holding an event working with security. It is obvious their event is growing and becoming a popular classic in the area.

Thanks to all of the pilots and club volunteers that made this a very successful and enjoyable event…I am sure everyone enjoyed themselves….I know I did.
