That buzzing sound hears in the skies in Central Saanich over the long weekend? That was Victoria’s Largest Little Airshow.
The annual event, put on the the area’s remote control modelers club, sees many different types of RC aircraft in the skies at Michell Field off Lochside Drive.
There was aerobatic flying, mock dogfights, Snoopy and the Red Baron, jet-type aircraft, and aircraft built specifically to knock each other out of the sky.
The event is the club’s way of saying thank you to the community that supports it — including all of the Central Saanich farming families that allow them use of their fields.
The annual event draws thousands of people, who enjoy the thrills and close calls in the sky —as well as all of the novelty model aircraft — that the club has to offer.
This year, the airshow raised money for CFAX Santa’s Anonymous.
(Correction: they were not raising money for the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation this year – the PNR apologizes for the error.)
