THE JERSEY COAST SPORT FLYERS

April 29, 2012 at Dorbrook Park on RT 537 just north of Colts Neck, NJ, I visited this radio controlled model aircraft club.  It was a special day in which there was scheduled aircraft dog fights.

Upon arrival, I found the club members unpacking their gear and preparing their aircraft for flying.

              

              

    

 

Soon, we were all enjoying an amazing helicopter flight.  The copter went straight up, straight down, it flew upside down, sideways and did numerous loops.

              

    

 

After the copter event, club members were attaching the 25 foot long streamers on their aircraft in preparation for the "Streamer Chase".

              

 

At the humorous shout of "gentleman, start your engines", the "Streamer Chase" began.  Before long one of the streamers was cut by a skilled pilot.

         

              

 

After the dogfight, I left Dorbrook park to get some lunch.  When I returned, I found Gary flying his special plane.  I met Gary at a Dunkin Donuts in Shrewsbury and he got me interested in visiting the meet.
              

         

 

I really enjoyed watching the club activities and it was clear that all the members were having a great time.
