Macon Aero modelers show planes for a cause

The Macon Aero Modelers Club is hosting a charity Fly-In at 9 a.m. Sept. 22 and 10 a.m. Sept. 23 at its flying field in Otto.

The proceeds will go to CareNet, a nonprofit organization that collects food for those in need. Visitors are asked to bring 10 cans of non-perishable food or donate $5 per car for parking.

The Fly-In is open to the public and will feature all types of radio-controlled airplanes and helicopters flying, and on display. The club’s airfield is located about eight miles south of Franklin on Tessentee Road. Hotdogs and barbecue will be available for lunch.
