2017-12-13 Evan Higginson's historic UteRC photos (Jordan River ModelPort)

These are copies of Evan Higginson's historic UteRC photos of events at the old Jordan River ModelPort. If there are members, airplanes, locations, or dates misidentified or unidentified, please let me know so I can correct the captions.

Clicking on most images will open them full-sized and zoomable in a new window.

Hey guys,

I've posted a lot of pictures on our website this year. I'm sure the members would like to see some of your photos, too. Photos from UteRC or out-of town model airplane events, RC or otherwise, are welcome. Let me know and I'll help you get your photos posted for all to see.
