    BAC To BAF "Post Tax Denial Fly-In"

    Just to remind anyone in range, our annual commiseration of Tax Day and celebration of our Baby Beeches will take place on Saturday, April 17th.

    BAC will be hosting the fly-in at Barnes Municipal Airport (KBAF), Westfield MA. Stuff begins to move at 0900.

    Come on in and meet old friends, new friends, stare at strangers, and generally look smug at flying such nice aircraft. (Kenny Cook: no more stenciling "Target Drone" on the Cessnas on the line this year!!)

    Beech Aero Club will feed you. If we have miraculous weather we may char some protein on the grill, if not we will invade the fine Runway Restaurant again.

    Five Star Jet Center still has the cheapest gas in the area (although neighbors AirFlyte are not far behind; both nice outfits). We have a tower and ILS for the timid; and we have a 9500' runway for the really timid.

    For details, call me:
    Steve Cote


    or PM me through the BAC site here.

    Hey Steve,

    Now that I'm airborn again - Jackie and I are tentatively planning on trying to make this one...
    Still need a refresher - was it pull back to go up - or - was it the other way around ???


    Regards,
    Scott

    Alrighty then! I will make sure I am at the airport bright and early to meet you.
    Is Rheinbeck open this early? You may want to check the website (http://www.oldrhinebeck.org/). In any case, the Hudson and Connecticut river valleys are georgeous. (Watch out for the West Point airspace...they are often shooting things in the back 40.)

    As for everyone else...come on in and greet out Texas cousins!

    Well of course it is! This too is traditional. Aww, hell, not much we can do about it. My advice to all is: if the conditions fit your personal minimums, come on down. If not, and you are close enough to drive, we'll be there. I have been persuaded that, far from my original Mother Hen attitude, we are all big boys and girls and can make our own decisions. So...we're stil on for Saturday!
