A model plane flies vertically Saturday at Bungee Park west of Celina. The planes were flying in the 20th annual Celina Flying Sportsmen Big Bird Fly-In. Planes flown in the event had to be over 80 inches in wing span or a quarter the size of the full-scale aircraft they emulate. Some models were capable of 200 mph speeds.
