Flying Farmer Fun Fly is this weekend in Rushmore

The 32nd annual Flying Farmer Fun Fly event will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday at 21316 300th St., Rushmore.


Many residents of Worthington and surrounding communities attend this radio control air show as well as several from as far away as California, Texas, Arizona and multiple states bordering Minnesota. The Flying Farmer Fun Fly is hosted by Adam Henning and Southwest Highflyers, which has been an existing Academy of Model Aeronautics club for 35 years.


Rural Rushmore resident Dave Boldt was the Southwest Highflyers member who hosted the event at his residence. Since Boldt's death, the event is now carried on by Henning, who has taken up residence on the Boldt homestead. Henning is a former Adrian resident.


Remote control aircraft such as planes, jets, choppers and drones will be flown during this weekend's event. The Southwest Highflyers are dedicated to youths and all ages, and club members will train those wanting to learn the hobby by appointment.


Lunch concessions will be available.
