Radio-controlled aircraft come in many shapes and sizes, but the ones we’re showing today are all very ambitious in scale. And by “ambitious,” we mean “ginormous.”
These low-level passes featuring one of the most ‘romantic’ aircraft ever built, the World War II era Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, are just stunning. Supposedly, they were filmed at RAF Bovingdon for the 1962 film The War Lover starring Steve McQueen, Robert Wagner, and Shirley Field.
The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum of Hamilton, Ontario is using eBay to auction the opportunity of a lifetime for an aviation or military history lover. The winner will help fly the last Canadian-built Avro Lancaster bomber (pictured above) to England.
