BILLINGS – It was quite the air show in west Billings this weekend, with the color, pageantry, and camaraderie of aviation.

Pilots took to the skies flying their radio control airplanes and helicopters at Chamberlain Field on Saturday.

It’s a chance to see the artistry of the planes and the skilled maneuvers from the pilots.

The fly-in is an annual tradition at the end of June for the Billings Flying Mustangs.

The event draws people from all around the area to share their unique hobby.

“We’re all aviation nuts,” said Dennis Schuld, Flying Mustangs club secretary. “It’s a lot about airplanes. It’s flying that got most of us into it. If you’re into airplanes come on out.  We have a lot of people that would be really happy to help you get into the hobby.”

The fly-in finishes on Sunday at Chamberlain Field, at 8223 Grand Avenue.
