SAL AeromodellingThis weekend saw an model aircraft competition, Chirimoya Air Meeting 2017, in Salobreña in the TH-2 area of the municipality.

The TH-2 is the area on the other side of the river mouth.

Around 50 radio-controller competitors participated from all over Spain with both propeller and rocket-powered aircraft.

The spectators were kept at a safe distance from the models because on average they had a 2.5m wingspan powered by 100cc engines.

The event took place over the Saturday and Sunday morning. In fact, if you are reading this now (before 14.00h) you can still catch the tail end of the event.

Should anybody be interested in contacting the model aircraft club, you can do so by phoning the club Chairman, Arsenio Solana on 622 406 022.
