I went back in 2001 and had a good time. There is even a small RC Helicopter demonstration during the intermission. I might go again this year.

let me know if you go.. maybe could meet up.

i saw they have an old Jet Ranger rc heli on display, looked like an old Kavan or Schluter in the museum.

i went the museum a few weeks ago, was one of the nicest aviation museums that I've been to. really good quality aircraft and you can get hands on with most of them.

I will definitely let you know if I can make it. The last time I attended you could get right up close to most/all of the machines that flew in for the event. They even had a CH-53 that you could walk though. It was amazing seeing seeing and feeling a CH-53 take off 100ft or so from you. I found the schedule on the website and there will be another RC demo. I believe Hootowl lives very close to the museum. Hopefully he'll chime in here as well.

Here is the schedule from the website.
