    Not cool. R/C aircrafts in the U.S. are not to be flown within 5 miles of an airport. The exception is; if the R/C field is within the 5 mile radius, the tower is to be contacted when the R/C field is active. Normally the R/C aircrafts fly below 700 ft. AGL.

    But like Stef says there are some crazy's out there Makes them look bad for the good guys.

    According to the newspaper he was reported to the authoroties by fellow R/C enthousiasts.

    One idiot makes a whole community look bad.....as so often happens unfortunately.

    That R/C aeroplane was thrown out of the sky by the wake turbulence of the B737.

    I have to agree, not cool to do something stupid as this.
