Event Description

Join us for the 28th running of the Western Kentucky/Southern Illinois Control Line Stunt Championships (WKSI). The event will be held on the McCracken County Model Airplane Park located at 501 County Park Road next to the McCracken County soccer fields during the weekend of August 17th and 18th 2013. Event times are 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. daily.

The competition is centered on five skill events plus Old Time Stunt, Profile Stunt, and Nostalgia 30 Stunt.

Old Time Stunt models are those designed, built, published or kitted before the last day of 1952.

Profile Stunt consists of a stunt model with only a narrow profile body and a side mounted engine.

The Nostalgia 30 Stunt event consists of models designed, built, kitted or flown up to thirty years ago.

All models are flown on two steel cables with lengths of 60 to 70 feet long and controlled by a handle.

Saturday morning will be basic flight and beginner skill events and Sunday will be the culmination of the best skill classes with Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert venues.

The WKSI is open to spectators and it is suggested that all visitors bring folding chairs due to limited seating. Grilled food will be available at noon time on each day for a small donation.

The entire family will enjoy this event!
