Over the weekend, the Cape Coral R/Seahawks hosted their annual Gathering of the Giants air show.

During the two-day event, pilots from around the country and their radio controlled aircrafts lined the club's airfield in Northwest Cape Coral anxiously awaiting the opportunity to thrill the crowd with their high in the sky acrobatics.

This was the twenty-third year the club has hosted the event, and over 50 pilots participated in the event making it one of the larger air shows in recent memory.

One of the highlights of this year's event was the all new combat exhibition where over half dozen pilots battled it out high above the crowd knocking each other out of the air until only one remained.

In addition to the combat exhibition, there were also radio controlled helicopter demonstrations, an opportunity for those attending to meet the pilots and get an up close view of the aircrafts participating in the event, and the always popular kids' candy drop, once again manned by Cape Coral Mayor Marni Sawicki.
