Approximately 15 Brazil Winged Modeler members were on hand Sunday at the Brazil-Clay County Airport, 475 E. CR 600 N., Brazil, for the organization's annual Air Show.

The event takes place in conjunction with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and is a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The event is named after Don May, an early member of the Terre Haute Radio/Remote Control Club, who died of muscular dystrophy in 1989.

"It's one of those things we decided to do," Brazil Winged Modeler Vice President Greg Squires said. "It's aviation ... aviation in general."

Squires said 100 percent of all proceeds go to MDA.

"Don May ... a lot of guys in the club knew him," Squires said.

The air show featured Bi-Planes (aerobatic flying), Warbirds (jets and helicopters) and full-scale static displays.

Food and beverages were also available for purchase at the show.
