RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - On Sunday wings were flying high at the 10th annual Black Hills Air Rally.

Model airplanes soared through the skies of Propbuster Field in north Rapid.

About 80 pilots and spectators came together for a weekend of flying and camaraderie.

The Rapid City Propbusters secretary says people can make their planes from scratch or buy ones almost ready to fly.

They can cost anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to a couple thousand.

Gene Jobgen, secretary, Rapid City Propbusters. says, "I enjoyed myself immensely. I always do. It's something that a group of us started 10 years ago and we've continued to do it. It's just good to see old friends from all around the country and make new ones with new people that show up every year. It's always been a good time."

Gene encourages everyone to join the instructional program of the Rapid City Propbusters Club.

He says it can get expensive if you keep crashing your plane, so it's best to learn from members with decades of knowledge.
