Tony Harris sends word of a flying event this Saturday, May 28, 2011 in Wytheville.

We will host the Rural Retreat Aerospace Club this Saturday for a day of flying.  Members are encouraged to come out and fly their planes for the kids, bring trainers and buddy boxes, help with lunch and crowd control.  Lunch will be served around 1:00pm.  The students have been practicing on the simulator and we want to give them a chance at a RC trainer and buddy box.  Everyone is invited to come out  and make this a great day for the kids.

Brothers Build World's Largest Model Airport

Via SlashDot
"Frederik and Gerrit Braun, energetic twin brothers with no shortage of dreams, have just finished construction of the world's largest model airport. With 40,000 lights, 15,000 figurines, 500 cars, 10,000 trees, 50 trains, 1000 wagons, 100 signals, 200 switches, 300 buildings and 40 planes, Knuffingen Airport is both a wonder to behold as well as a technological tour de force. The best part of Knuffingen is that it's alive. Forty planes and 90 vehicles move about autonomously. Located in Hamburg, Germany, the model is based on Hamburg Airport."
