Iraqi Model Airplane Club


As security has improved in Iraq, people across the country have the luxury to spend more time outside, do some shopping, and follow their hobbies. A small group of enthusiasts in Baghdad have taken up building and flying model airplanes, and even take part in shows in other countries. On February 10, 2012, some of them got together for an airshow in the Iraqi capital.
