Spotted: Model airplanes at Portola Valley Flight Night
Planes were buzzing over Portola Valley yesterday afternoon and into the evening during the town’s Flight Night.
Model aviation enthusiasts piloted radio-controlled airplanes, sailplanes, and helicopters. After the sun set, illuminated model aircraft performed aerobatics.
Youngster Thatcher (bottom left) got a chance to try his hand at flying a radio-controlled plane using a dual control system.
