Large-scale model aircraft, hamburgers and hot dogs will all be part of a fun-fuelled Melton Model Aircraft Association open day.

The free event will give visitors the chance to fly a radio-controlled aircraft ranging from older warbirds to racing aircraft and gas turbine jets.

Lolly drops from flying planes will take place throughout the day – a highlight for kids of all ages.

Association president David Axon said the event attracted hundreds of people each year.

The open day is at Mount Cottrell Reserve on Faulkners Road between 11am and 3pm on Sunday, November 19.
