RCFlightline, the radio-controlled aircraft hub of the web, has just released the latest episode of their entertaining and family-friendly "Beyond The Flightline" podcast. Entirely dedicated to the United States Military, the featured interviews in this episode seek to honor the relentless innovations this country’s armed forces have continually provided to the world of military, commercial and hobby aviation. "We want to remember our Armed Forces in a bunch of different ways," explained RCFlightline President Todd Carrison, "One of the ways I like to do it is through aviation. [By speaking to] people who keep the history of aviation and wartime aircraft in front of us all the time, we never forget where our freedom came from in the first place."
"No Cuts, No Glory!" – A Conversation With The RC Combat Association
Bob Loescher, President of the Radio Controlled Combat Association (RCCA), discusses how his organization’
s combat events are not only exciting to witness, but how they’re even more fun to participate in. Dedicated to model aviation enthusiasts who love the War Planes of WWII and enjoy a bit of friendly competition, the RCCA is an organization catering to those who love model airplanes that "look like the real thing" – in this case, fighter and attach aircraft that had been designed or used in service between 1935 and 1955.

The Supermarine Spitfire – Mike O’Sullivan Discusses His Sought-After Spitfire Reproduction Kits
Based in Cisco, Texas, Michael (Mike) O’Sullivan’
s Supermarine kit aircraft manufacturing business began 21 years ago in a small hangar between Abilene and Dallas. Today, his Spitfires are sold and flying throughout the world, thanks to millions of dollars spent on R&D creating a product that is high quality, safe, and a joy to fly. O’Sullivan’
s Mk26 and Mk26b are well-proven designs featuring all aluminum components pre-drilled and precision cut using a computer controlled CNC router cutter. The resulting consistency and accuracy makes them a far cry from the original Spitfires’ construction methods and is perfect for any average builder who is good with their hands.
