Welcoming Back the Lycoming R-680
New arrival - Bede BD-5
We recently obtained a Bede BD-5 from Gavilan College. This was a single seat aircraft sold in kit form starting in the 1970s. This is going to be a project for some of our teenage volunteers.
It’s most notable for its appearance in the James Bond movie Octopussy where while trying to evade a missile, James flies it through the quickly closing doors of the bad guys’ hangar.
