See fast flying micro machines, in this rapid growing sport, as 40 pilots maneuver their drones over, under and around the C-124 and F-82 along the racecourse in the Korean War Gallery. (Public will not be able to walk inside of the C-124 during this event.)
The race will begin at 11 a.m. and will consist of a series of 2-minute heats with four drones in each heat. (Pilots will practice between 9-11 a.m.) Spectators will be able to watch the race along the course, as well as from a large screen that will show the drones' perspective as they are racing.
In addition, visitors will be able to try their hand at flying drones and experience flying a drone with computer-based simulators. Visitor's can also visit the "SkyVision" air traffic control center to learn about drones used in the Air Force.
