See hundreds of radio controlled aircraft fly through the skies at the Olean Airport on July 7-8, 2012.Every year since July 1978, The Southern Tier Aero Radio Society has held a Radio Controlled Model Aircraft Scale Rally.  It is one of the largest Radio Controlled Model Aircraft Scale Rallies in New York State and was the first to feature Giant Scale Model aircraft.  During the Rally, the airport is closed to full-scale aircraft activity in order to allow the Radio Controlled pilots full access to the skies over the 2000+ foot grass runway.  The Rally has attracted modelers from all across the United States and from foreign countries including Canada.  It features hundreds of different types and sizes of scale aircraft and in recent years has included evening flying of electric models.

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
