It’s a boat! It’s a plane! It’s the First Annual South Suburban R.C. Air & Water Show being held Saturday, August 11th from 10 a.m. to Noon.

Get out your aviator glasses and bomber jackets for this action packed morning as remote controlled boats, planes and helicopters buzz around Dolphin Lake, located at 183rd Street and Governors Highway in Homewood, Illinois.

These war birds will be sure to grab the kids attention with dare devil thrills in the air and on the water! Flying and aerobatic demonstrations will be provided by the Suburban Aero Club of Chicago, Model Masters and Palos R.C., which serve the South and Southwest Suburban Chicago area and are Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) chartered clubs.

The South Suburban R.C. Air & Water Show, presented by the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District is a FREE event celebrating the exhibition of aircraft and piloting skills. All children in attendance are eligible to apply for a FREE membership to the AMA.

Pack a picnic, keep your eyes to the sky and enjoy the show!

I think this "Air & Water " Show is SUCH a TERRIFIC idea -- I know when my kids were growing up a few years back they would have loved it-- my son would have been there with his remote control boat for sure!! What a good idea-- I hope it does well & comes back next Summer~~~
