In case you haven't heard there is going to be a BAC/Musketeer fly-in
for the Indianapolis Air Show on August 26th and another fly-in at the
Griffith/Merrillville airport on September 16th. This event is sponsored
by Beech Aero Club but all musketeer drivers and want-a-bes are welcome!



The Indianapolis Air Show, featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, is
being held at the Mt. Comfort, IN Airport (MQJ) which is located just
East of Indianapolis. The Web address for the show is <
http://www.indyairshow.com/default.htm>. The airport will be closed from
noon to 5 PM on August 26th for the air show. So we'll aim to arrive by
10:00 but no later than 11:00 and meet at Jack Morton's hangar. Jack
will let us know where to park. Food and activities all day long at the
Air Show. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and all the wild tales you have
to share. Jack's email address is <morton@hrtc.net> please let him know
if you're planning to attend. Here are some personal directions and
recommendations from Jack: "Taxiway Alpha is parallel to 07-25. Take it
to Alpha2 which goes North past the FBO. We are in the middle of the 5
T-hangar buildings on the left: building 406, hangar 14. If you take
Alpha2 all the way North until it ends, you can park in the grass
between the hangars and the fence. If you'll call me on 317-626-5909 or
123.45, I'll play traffic cop to help get you settled. Although the
airport doesn't close until Noon, the crowds start growing around 10:00
or so. When it gets too crowded, they make you shut down coming off
Alpha. That's a long way to drag a plane, so you might come a little
early. We're looking forward to meeting everyone - fresh faces to tell
our lies, ah, er, stories to I'll be monitoring 123.45 prior to the
show and will listen for you. Just announce yourself as Beech Aero Club
& I'll guide you in. We have a temporary tower over the weekend and I'm
sure they won't be able to deal with a private fly-in group. I believe
their frequencies are:



Tower 118.675



Ground 121.8



AWOS 124.175



UNICOM 122.7



Ultra Lights 123.40



Indianapolis Approach/Departure 127.15



IFR Clearance Delivery 119.25



Terre Haute (HUF) AFSS (Airborne) 122.55"



BTW, Jack is one of the newest members of BAC. Welcome Jack and thank
you for volunteering to sponsor the fly-in.





The second Indiana fly-in: We are having a Pilots With Presents fly-in
on September 16th at Griffith Merrillville, IN (05C) which is located in
Northwestern Indiana. This is a great place and a great reason to have a
BAC fly-in! The presents portion of the day is sponsored by the
Salvation Army. People are encouraged to bring unwrapped presents
(approx $10.00 value) that the Salvation Army will distribute at
Christmas time. In return the pilot will receive a breakfast or lunch
(more details later). The Grumman group is considering being there, and
the local lunchwaffe group will be there. In years past this has been a
well attended event. The host of the BAC/Musketeer portion of the
fly-in, Ron Mattson, is trying to arrange a tour of the G&N Aircraft,
Inc. who is famous for its engine overhauls. I took this tour last year
and it is time well spent for any pilot! More details later. Ron's email
address is <rmattson@flash.net>. This event is sponsored by Beech Aero
Club but all musketeer pilots and want-a-bes are welcome!
