Default 34th Annual Father's Day Fly-in Breakfast at Beach City Airport

Looking to get add'l 12’s to join the Father’s Day breakfast fly-in at Beach City (2D7) in northern Ohio on Sunday June 17. This is the 34th annual Father's Day Fly-in Breakfast at Beach City Airport. I’ve been doing this for the better part of 25 years – most often with my late father in our J-3, but the last two years I flew the 12. Beautiful setting with airport homes along a 3200’ grass strip. Good food and good hospitality. Some years they get over a hundred planes.

My friend and fellow RV owner is the airport manager. He gave me my first GA aircraft ride a few years ago in his RV, so I totally blame him for wiping out my savings LOL.

I've been there twice by car - this will be my first time flying there with my son - even though the RV isn't done yet.

Looking forward to Sunday. We are departing KMRB Sunday morning.

Weather forecast looks perfect. We might have four 12's going - two for sure...

Picture shows three of four 12’s at Beach City this morning for Father's Day fly-in. We got there late (9:30) and had to park out by the road. Probably 100 airplanes showed up. I wish I could have taken a picture of my iPad ForeFlight screen showing ~15 targets all converging with eight planes in the traffic pattern at the same time. Good time had by all…
