GILLETTE — The wind whipped through a recent cool Saturday morning as about 20 people gathered at the Sage Hoppers RC Club’s annual Fly-In at its airfield east of Cam-plex in Gillette.
Biscuits and gravy served alongside hot coffee helped warm up the remote-control pilots as they gathered in a circle around Sage Hoppers President Jack Adsit.
“It takes brave people to fly a plane in wind like this,” Adsit told the group before going over some brief safety guidelines and beginning the day’s event.
The group consisted of mostly men, with a handful of younger kids running around, bringing equal parts youth and enthusiasm to the event.
The Sage Hoppers members love remote-controlled planes and love aviation. Now they want Wyoming students to love flying, too.
