Butch Krebs logged more than 400 jumps out of planes and learned to fly one before turning his attention to model airplanes.
“I’ve always been interested in aviation since I was a kid. I’ve tried most of it out,” Krebs said.
This Saturday, the public will have the opportunity to learn more about model planes from Krebs and fellow members of the Central Kentucky Float Flyers at the group’s second model airplane show in Winchester.
Saturday members will meet at their home base, the Winchester Municipal Utilities Northeast Retention Basin on VanMeter Road from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to fly “float flyers,” model airplanes that must take off and land on bodies of water.
The show is free, but donations will be collected for the Clark County Animal Shelter and the Winchester Youth Soccer League.
The Central Kentucky Float Flyers has six members from Winchester, including Krebs and friend Bob Strosnider, who Krebs taught to fly.
