Englewood, FL-Sixth Annual Buchan-Dearborn Aviation Day

As the bright morning sun sheds it's first light on Buchan Airport you may hear the welcome drone of a light plane in its landing pattern while a score of volunteers are busily preparing for the Sixth Annual Buchan Aviation Fly-in Breakfast.

This years fly-in will take place at Buchan Airport located on the north end of Old Englewood Road on Saturday, October the 13th, 2012, from 9 AM to 12 PM.  Admission is FREE!   There is ample free parking with donations graciously accepted.  A Quiche breakfast including pastry, orange juice, and coffee will be available for $6.00 from 9 AM til 12 PM.

As many as forty airplanes of various types including biplane, helicopter, private and experimental aircraft are expected and will be available for viewing, as well as discussion with the pilots.  Former Pan Am pilot Bill Nash will be on hand again this year to share his many exciting experiences flying the famous Boing 304 Clipper (the flying boat) along with many other distinguished aviators.

There will be numerous exhibitors including RC planes, aviation books and parts, the Historical Society, Arts Alliance, and Coast Guard.  A 50/50 drawing and other donated prizes will be awarded including theater tickets, jewelry, golf for four at Myakka, and gift certificates from Outback, Gulf View Grill, and Applebee's.
