Overview

Joe Nall Week (aka "the 'Nall") is a RC fly-in that takes place once per year in South Carolina's city of Woodruff in a sprawling piece of land called Triple Tree Aerodrome. The fly-in has been held since 1983 but was officially named Joe Nall in 1990.

Joe Nall fly-in was named after Joseph T. Nall (1942 ~ 1989) who was an avid aviator and a RC enthusiast. As an aviator, Joe received an appointment in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan as a Board Member of the National Transportation Safety Board in Washington, D.C. In 1989, however, he died in an aircraft accident while on official business in Caracas, Venezuela.

During the years from 1982 until his death in 1989, Joe served as Master of Ceremonies of the Giant Scale Fly In held at Hartness Field ~ always using his aviation and modeling experience as well as his sense of humor to entertain the audience.

After Joe's death, his good friend, Pat Hartness, honored his memory by renaming the Woodruff, SC event The Joe Nall Fly-in.

The Joe Nall Fly-in consists of one solid week of RC airplanes and helicopters filling the skys above Triple Tree. The event features nearly everyone who's on the "who's who" pilots list in RC aviation -- as well as everyone who's not. Multiple flight lines dedicated to airplanes and helicopters -- including an amphibian line on the ground's lake -- provide enough entertainment for anyone who attends, whether they fly or just watch.

If you are an RC enthusiast who wants to fly, spectate, or just hang out with other members of the RC hobby, this event is a must-see.
