    ALL FLYING THE SAME DAY(s) BAC Weekend 8/22 to 8/23/2020

    How Many Planes Can We Get In The Air On The Same Weekend?

    In 2013 Tom Robertson (TOMTERRIFIC) suggested:
    I propose we schedule a BAC [weekend] Day. This day would be set aside by members for the purpose of taking our Beeches for a flight. Flights can be for 5 minutes or an all day affair. On subsequent days we would write our experiences to a forum here for everyone to see. How many of our aircraft can get into the air in one day?
    So, what do you think?

    Today, I don't find a record of how many of our planes took to the air on previous days like this. . However, it seems like a fun thing to do again.

    So, I have arbitrarily picked the Saturday August 22, 2020 and Sunday August 23, 2020 for our event. To qualify fly your plane anywhere for any length of time on that weekend. Report that you flew on this thread. Only a short message like "N1234X flew on BAC Weekend" is necessary... or, if you like, write more detail including where and how high etc. Maybe try skywriting that day.

    Wherever you are in the world BAC Weekend begins at local sunrise on August 22 and ends at local sunrise on August 24. If you can only go to the airport and touch your plane because of crappy weather we may later decide to count that.

    Good luck. Any other ideas are welcome. Tom Corcoran

    I can’t do this one.
    We are in stage 4 lockdown for at least another six weeks. The airfield is closed and flying is banned. I am not even allowed to move more than 5km (3 miles) from home, so I can’t even go out to play.

    The difference right there is astounding. Mark, sorry you can't fly but all of us that will try or get flying will think of you. I'll be one of us trying to be flying.

    Mark, I'm really sorry for you but the upside is : locked at home means you have more time to assist all of us with your tremendous knowledge!

    Can someone post the date again. I can always take a quick hop for a Dr. Pepper of a fish taco, but I gotta be on the right date!
