Orange County Radio Control Club will hold a special fly-in on Saturday to honor those who have served our country.

Members of the Orange County Radio Control Club can be found at the Model Air Park, 10623 Farm to Market Road 1442 in Orange, on Tuesday and Saturday mornings as new and older planes are flown.

Saturday, the club will host a special Fly-In for veterans. The event will begin at 9 a.m. with a Pilot’s meeting.

The organization has a history of emphasizing safety and the group has had zero injuries for several years.

To stay within permitted standards, planes at the park have to be kept at 200 feet or less, or what is called a visual flight.

The Orange County Radio Control Club officially meets at the airpark on the first Saturday of the month, rain or shine. Visitors are welcome at the park as long as a member of the club is present.
