Before the finals, there was one
more competition on Saturday:
the all-important night-fly.
This extravaganza of lights and
fireworks draws many people
from Muncie and surrounding
communities to AMA, and has
become a tradition, kicking off
the International Aeromodeling
Center’s summer activities.
Joe Smith, Terry Hahn, Jase
Dussia, and Chris Hass wowed
the crowd on the airplane side,
with bright lights on the wings
and even fireworks shooting
from the wingtips. Colin Bell,
James Haley, and Nick Maxwell
left the spectators awestruck
with brightly lit, flashing LEDs
on their helicopters and even
spinning blades that lit up with
images and words.
Audience approval brought the
title of night-fly champion down
to two pilots: Jase and Nick.
Nick’s Night Magic image blades
won the spectators over, and he
came away with $500 in prize
money. The night was capped off
by amazing fireworks that lit up
