Not just jets at Airliner Treffen. Some very nice fixed wing passenger type aircraft were displayed. Here Ralph and Wolfgang fly their scratch built Beech-18s. I don't think they had flown together before but they did an awesome display for the attending crowd ! Scale: 1:4 Wingspan: 3.6 metres Length: 2.58 metres...

Probably the best example you will see of flutter on an aircraft. Ramy's first flight at Airliner Treffen Show nearly ends in disaster when the push rod on the rudder becomes lose and the flutter destroys the lower part of the rudder. Added to that a bad hinge on an aileron results in flutter of the left wing. It...

14 pilots put up their rides for a combined prop hang for a Show record! Even with their prop hanging skills this was no easy feat. Avoiding all the other RC aircraft was challenging and there was at least one near miss. Unfortunately there was one crash at the end. One adventurous pilot tries to fly through the...

This Lockheed L-1011 Tristar would have been perfect by itself but when his son used the RC tug/tractor to pull it out to the runway...and pull it back to the pits...

Seriously, this guy has zero respect for the laws of physics! Any other RC pilot understands the basic concepts of gravity and lift and turbulence etc and stays within them...but not Jase. He just ignores those limitations and puts his airframe through unreal torture...all for the appreciation of the crowd at...
