Machine Gunning RC Planes at Big Sandy Range

Flying RC planes is fun - but firing at RC planes is real fun. Although, for armature hobbyists, it means lot of ammo being sprayed on to the flying machine, the experts just fire a few bullets to shoot down a RC plane.

I came across a video of enthusiasts and hobbyists firing to shoot down the rc airplane and thought of sharing those who have similar interests and may have even participated in such adventures.

The video below was filmed in October, 2010 Big Sandy MG Shoot near Wikieup, Arizona. As reported, in all 1500 reactive targets and 38 planes were used in the live firing exercise and obviously, the airplanes didn't stand a chance as everyone's Triple A capabilities were awesome. One can see none of the airplanes making it through more than 6 passes with most of them getting shot down in 2 or 3.

To the end of the video, the night flying coverage is really impressive with tracers lighting up the range. As reported, 200 rounds a second going up at the planes when they presented themselves. 

Watch the video below:

  1. This is the first time I am seeing that RC Planes are used for the firing purpose. Its good technique for the army persons for the practice.
