DALLAS/FORT WORTH – It was a 13-month labor of love! Nick Bernier, chief operations officer at Burgess Construction Consultants Inc. in Richardson, built this P-47 remote controlled airplane from scratch as well as painted it. The plane boasts a 102-in. wingspan, weighs 52 lbs. and runs off of an 11 horsepower gas engine. Bernier recently took to the skies at the North Dallas RC Field. –mjm
