We drove out into the far reaches of Banks, Oregon, past cherry trees, vineyards, and u-pick berry farms. Finally we arrived at the 30th annual RC (Remote Control) Air Show. There was an old fashioned loudspeaker (standard military issue style) hanging from a tree. A sweet old woman passed around stick planes to the kids (it took 5 minutes before I was fishing one out of a tree). A neat band was playing Johnny Cash remakes and the like under a tarp awning. We ate really good hot dogs and I drank really bitter coffee (think trucker flavor). Unbelievable airplane stunts went on in front of us that would make any pilot hurl and any passenger file a lawsuit, if these were actual life size planes. We watched a flying lawnmower do loop de loops. There was air combat. I loved every minute of it. I think I'll go back next year. Here's where to find this fantastic (and obscure) outing.
