GOSHEN MUNICIPAL AIRPORT TO HOST AIRCRAFT EVENT

The City of Goshen and the Goshen Municipal Airport will again host the annual Air Supremacy over Goshen remote control aircraft event, which will bring a weekend full of fun activities for everyone in the family.

From Thursday, July 12, to Saturday, July 14, the municipal airport, 17229 Co Rd 42, will be host to more than 250 model aircraft of all sizes. More than 100 radio control craftsmen from all over the Midwest will be in attendance.

Mayor Jeremy Stutsman and Airport Manager Randy Sharkey again encourage the community to this year’s event.

Event coordinator RJ Monroe said he sees this event growing each year and attracting larger crowds.

“With our move to Goshen Airport we have opened the door to become the premier event of its kind in the Midwest and the potential to become national in scope,” he said.

This will be the sixth year that the Air Supremacy event has been held, though it’s the second year it’s been held in Goshen. The show features aircraft from WWI, The Golden Era, WWII, and the classics like the Piper Clubs and military-style turbine jets.

Flying will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event is open to everyone, for just $5 a person. Children under 12, veterans and military enter free of charge. There will be food and hobby vendors. Attendants are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs or blankets.
