Wings Over Piper fun fly to be held Aug. 5
LOCK HAVEN – The 2013 Wings Over Piper R/C model plane fun fly will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 3 and 4 and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 5 at the William T. Piper Memorial Airport, 353 Proctor St.
This August marks the 11th edition of Wings Over Piper. The event honors the role Lock Haven and the Piper Aircraft Corporation played in creating our country’s general aviation industry. It also gives model plane enthusiasts the opportunity to fly their planes at an historic venue. There will be a “landing fee” for participants during the event.
In addition to watching model planes of all sizes, many of them Piper Cubs, spectators will be able to enjoy food from local vendors as well as purchase tickets for a chicken dinner to be held on Aug. 4. Vendors of model plane related items will also be on site during the event.
