First International China R/C Airshow

Event information from Scott, Thank you very much!

The event was held over 3 days at the National Air and Space Museum near Beijing China. 

They have built a special r/c airfield at the museum for
r/c demonstrations with paved runways and permanent seating for
spectators.  It was 100yrs aviation in China and 60yrs Air Force
anniversaries, so there was big promotions of this event and also full
size jet flybys and TV coverage by CCTV (Chinese main TV broadcast).

The show was mainly for some spectators and media/magazines of R/C
community, but also special for the Air Force top Commander of China and
many other military people.  Sadly on the main show day (Sunday) it was
cold and snowing!  This did not stop a few of us from flying however.
So they did a short airshow and only featured 4 pilots (Jason Noll, C.
Paysant Le Roux, German jet team, and myself with helicopter demo).  All
our flights were well greeted by the spectators and they seemed to enjoy
the 3
D demos.  It was on live TV as well.
