Indoor Air Show

Museum Offers Air Show Excitement at its Annual Indoor Air Show January 13, 2018

ASHLAND, NE (Dec 18, 2017) – The Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum announces its annual Indoor Air Show event set for Saturday, January 13, 2018. The Indoor Air Show brings the fun and excitement of an air show inside with radio-controlled (R/C) models. The model pilots will demonstrate loops, flips, and barrel rolls in the Museum’s climate-controlled Durham Restoration Hangar.

Air shows are popular outdoor shows in warm weather months, but in the winter, it is difficult for enthusiasts to find airfield substitutes. To help ease the air show withdrawal, the Museum offers its 30,000+ square foot hangar to local R/C clubs.

The public is invited to attend and experience flight, learn about radio-controlled aircraft, quadcopters, and safe flying practices. Over seventy-five pilots will demonstrate their skills in a space that has 60-foot ceiling height, which enables them to practice acrobatic dives.

R/C club pilots will fly throughout the day beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding at 2 p.m. The Indoor Air Show will also include an R/C flight safety workshop, interactive booths from event sponsor Silverhawk Aviation, R/C clubs, UNL, and more.

An ultralight aircraft presentation will be held in the museum’s theater at 1:30 p.m. Ultralight aircraft are one seat fixed- wing aircraft that are used for recreational flight. A pilot’s license is not required to fly an ultralight.
