The ‘Big Birds’ will take to the skies from Ravel Stroman Field this weekend at Lake Wright Patman.  It’s the 24th Annual Texarkana Big Bird Event with the Texarkana Radio Control Flying Club.


I have been into remote controlled everything for years and still own a couple of trucks and a helicopter, but the skill to fly these planes is something everyone needs to see for themselves.

The Texarkana Big Bird event will run from Thursday April 24th thru Sunday April 27th.  The event is free to the public with flying and competition on Saturday.  Flying time will depend on conditions but is scheduled for 10 a.m. to dark.

Take a look at some of this video from past Big Bird Events…
