Saturday Program Downsized from Boeing 747 to Lear 60

We had planned on having two pilots who fly the Boeing 747 Global SuperTanker come and speak to us this coming Saturday for our BBQ Lunch and a Program event.

Unfortunately for us, but probably not so much for the State of California, the two pilots and the 747 tanker have been released, probably for the season, by CalFire and the pilots have headed home. Thus, no Boeing 747 Global SuperTanker program.

As a fill in, Scott will present a program on flying the Lear 60. Not quite so impressive, but it should be of some interest to to those who might not have had the opportunity to fly a nice high-performance corporate jet. So come on out anyways…the food will be good and the hangar flying uplifting.

Saturday, October 13th: BBQ Lunch and Program: Boeing 747 Global SuperTanker pilot presentation (BBQ Lunch)

On Saturday 13th, we’ll be having a barbecue lunch from 11:00 – 12:00.

At 12:00 we will have a program presented two pilots who fly the Boeing 747 air tanker for Global Super Tankers. The giant air tanker is currently based at McClellan for use against northern California wild fires. It is capable of carrying nearly 20,000 of fire retardant or water per load. Join pilots Tom Parsons and Marcos Valdez as they present on their very specialized airplane and mission.

Just a note: because of the nature of their mission, there is the chance that this presentation will be postponed if they are off fighting fires instead of eating BBQ lunches.
