Warbirds Over Iowa
- 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. -
- All Ages
Warbirds Over Iowa is an event that brings large radio controlled scale military aircraft from Iowa and surrounding States to Cedar Rapids. Aircraft types include Biplanes, Jets, Fighters, and Bombers that have exceptional scale detail and can drop simulated “bombs” in the interest of realism as they compete for awards like Best Flight, Best Scale Appearance, and Pilot's Choice. The event is a draw to pilots in surrounding states and also a fund raiser for Eastern Iowa Honor Flight. Donations will be taken for the organization that allows veterans to fly to Washington to visit their memorials. Honor flight will be on site to provide information to veterans who would like to participate in a future Honor Flight. It’s free admission for spectators, so come see the aircraft fly.
The event is located at the Skyhawks club field north of town near county home road. Turn south on C avenue from county home road, then take the first left. Aircraft will fly throughout the day 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday, August 28th. If weather is bad it will be held on Sunday, August 29th.
