The Southern Indiana Flying Eagles, a club for enthusiasts of radio-controlled model aircraft, organized its first fly-in Saturday at Freeman Municipal Airport in Seymour.
About 300 spectators attended the event at the club’s new fly zone, which is operated on an unused portion of an old runway on the airport’s far northwest corner.
Club president Justin Drake of Norman said he was encouraged by the community’s show of interest in the hobby.
“For our first fly-in, I’m impressed with the turnout,” he said. “One person came from four hours away to compete.”
