The skies over Lowe's Motor Speedway will be buzzing Saturday, April 12, when the Flying Aces Pilots' Association hosts its Spring Fly-In on the grounds of the motorsports facility.

Featuring many of the Southeast's top radio-controlled airplane pilots, the event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. More than 75 miniature aircraft are expected to take to the sky, including vintage war birds and aerobatic planes. Don Stegall, chairman of RCPRO, will also present a sport-plane pylon racing demonstration.

Sanctioned by the Academy of Model Aeronautics, the event will take place in a specially designed "flying field" located in the parking areas behind the speedway's backstretch. There is a $10 landing fee for pilots.
