Last weekend my sister and I went to Wings over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Lowry. It was their 10th annual exposition, which is an event that highlights the many model airplane clubs in Denver. The clubs sponsor events where they fly large radio controlled aircraft. At the Museum we saw many things such as full size airplanes, a flight simulator which is a model of a cockpit of an airplane that pilots use to train to become a pilot, and a Star Wars X wing fighter.
We interviewed a man named Dave who is a member of a club called the Colorado Dawn Patrol. A club is a group of people that share the same interest. For Colorado Dawn Patrol, the interest is radio controlled airplanes. Over the summer, they host events for people to come and see airplanes up close and see them fly. The members do more than just fly airplanes. They play games. One of the games they do is each member has a remote controlled airplane and they try to drop an egg into a milk carton. The egg is in a cup on the plane and whenever you want to drop the egg, you flip over the airplane. Dave also told us each plane at the museum is about $1,000 and most of the planes there you have to put together from a kit. A kit comes with all the parts of the airplane except the engine, but you still have to put it together. The planes at the museum were very interesting and I hope others give the Wings over the Rockies a try!
