Thread: Maine Summer At The Beach Fly-In

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Maine Summer At The Beach Fly-In

    Hey all, in August when it's horribly hot and everyone has time off...I'd love to have you all at a FLY-IN at Biddeford Maine Airport (B19).

    Biddeford is having their annual Open House on Saturday August 17 2019 (rain date Sunday August 18 ) and would be thrilled to have BAC planes lined up on the flight line for all the locals to see. And, there is a local restaurant that can send a bus over to pick us up for lunch and bring us back. There is parking room for at least 15 planes. Open House is approx 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    ---AND---
    current 100LL fuel price is $4.69/gal (!) and a good A&P on the field

    I live about 13 miles away near Scarborough Beach, and if anyone wants to go for a swim at the beach I will transport them out & back. If the weather holds for Saturday and Sunday, I could put up a few folks at our house overnight. Maybe lobstahs that evening too...

    At B19 is a Skipper, a Musketeer and a Super III; there used to be a Duchess but it sold in March. There might also be some Sundowners hiding the hangars. As far as I know, I am the only BAC member in the local area, so together we can look for recruits.

    Sounds like a good time. Weather and maintenance permitting, I will be there.

    Look forward to seeing you Glenn!

    We have everything pretty much figured out except the weather, unless all 850 BAC members show up!

    Lisa,

    We are looking forward to you hosting the Biddeford Fly-In.
    Choosing the same day as the airport open house adds to the entertainment.
    Being the Maine region director for BAC I can sweeten the offer...
    BAC will buy lunch for members and their flying companions who participate.
    Also, each member will get a Beech Aero Club signal kit. These were prepared to help downed planes get noticed by searchers.
    We have some tool bags and ammo boxers left from previous fly-ins which will be distributed while they last.
    Members who arrive will be credited for president's points which comes with attaboys at BACFest.

    I will be flying from my base of 1B9 to your base of B19. A coincidence.

    Tom Corcoran btw: Our club is only inches from having 700 members. 850 is a future goal.

    Hope you can make it Charlie! If you do, just beware a 150 wind at Biddeford when using runway 24, it gets quite a swirl coming over the trees, See you next month, weather willing

    This might be doable for Mary and I.

    We can do the fly in then head over for a couple of days in Bar Harbor. Or we can head back towards Boston to visit family.

    Gary,
    It would be a joy to see you and Mary in Maine. We expected a siting of you two in Denver in September but this will be a special treat. If Margie and I can help you in Boston we are happy to do it. Our house is in Braintree just 11 miles south of Boston. Nearest airport is Norwood KOWD.
