A local arborist came to the rescue after the County’s John Ferguson got his radio-controlled airplane stuck in a tree.

“On Tuesday I was flying one of my large planes equipped with a camera when I came too close to the top of a very tall tree and got stuck in it,” said Ferguson, a member of the Bay of Quinte Aeromodellers Club. “After spending hours trying to free the plane using a ladder and very long pole I called Matt Morch, of Picton, an arborist who came to my rescue.”

The radio-controlled plane with a seven-foot wingspan, was sitting on top of a leafy 70 to 80 foot Maple just off the west end of the Consecon Flying field.

“Matt climbed to the very top of the tree using a rope and climbing equipment,” said Ferguson. “He carefully lowered the plane to the ground to fly another day.”

    Ray, it shows how expensive these things are, and would do anything to get them back.

    This shows how attached we are to our flying models.
