Model planes signal Westmoreland air show |

By Jeff Himler:

Members of the Laurel Highlands Model Airplane Club arranged a display of model planes in April at Greensburg’s East Pittsburgh Street Shop ‘n Save supermarket. It’s the second year for the display, which promotes the Westmoreland County Airshow that the grocery chain sponsors.

This year’s models were based on World War II planes, in keeping with the “Tora, Tora, Tora” Pearl Harbor simulation.

Both the club and the supermarket have ground-based displays at the air show. The club showcases a variety of its members’ model aircraft. Shop ‘n Save’s exhibit includes NASCAR race cars, dragsters and a vehicle billed as the world’s largest and fastest grocery cart — with a 360 horsepower motor and a capacity of 160 bags of groceries.

Shop ‘n Save makes a donation to the Feherty’s Troops First Foundation, which helps service members who were wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan.
