One of the coolest remote control airplanes on display at the Biggest Little Airshow is this Douglas SBC Dauntless. It is the most famous US Navy bomber of World War II nicknamed “Slow but deadly”.  It was the only US aircraft to participate in all five naval engagements that were fought exclusively between aircraft carriers. In 1942 these plans sank more enemy shipping then any other aircraft combined. They also bombed and destroyed the cream of the Japanese aircraft carrier fleet during the Battle of Midway.
