Some unique small planes filled the skies in Putnam County Saturday and it was all for a good cause.
The Flying Hillbillies Radio Control Club held an air show and fundraiser Saturday benefiting the Wounded Warriors Project.
Club members showed off both giant scale and aerobatic radio controlled planes and helicopters.
The planes are small but some of them reach speeds of over 200 miles per hour.
The show also included some trainer airplanes with flight instructors and simulators so the public could try their hand at flying.
The EMS HealthNet and State Police choppers were also on display.
