West Texas Warbirds 2010-2011
Labor Day Weekend!
August 30 - September 1st, 2013
West Texas Warbirds is an annual event featuring some of the national best in scale military radio controlled model aircraft.
This event is a real treat for modelers and spectators alike and will feature aircraft from several countries in campaign colors and markings for a special, model airshow spectacle. Model aircraft pilots from around the region and several states will bring their best fighters, trainers, bombers and transports from early aviation to present day.
The Abernathy Aerodrome features a big, 1300'+ x 75' hard surface runway with spacious startup area, taxiway and limited covered pit area. The sky is without obstructions or dangers of trees or powerlines. As a quality flying site, it doesn't get much better!
Visiting spectators will really enjoy the event! The best viewing times will be during Saturday's action, from around 10:00am -4:00pm. Be sure to bring your camera, lawn chairs and sunscreen. Food and drinks will be available on site.
Please understand that flying activity is heavily dependent on good weather. With moderate temperatures and low winds, the flying action is almost non-stop!
