Hamburg Jet Jamboree
October 10-12, 2008
The trip to Hamburg, PA. was like a very pleasant working vacation. The people, the topography, the time of the year, the perfect weather, the accommodations at the hunting lodge,plus all the flying you could want allowed us to thoroughly enjoy this outing.
When we finished flying at the field and got something to eat, we were flying the latest Horizon Blade MCX in the guest room at the lodge.
This second annual event will surely grow from the 58 registered pilots this year. It is a perfect place and time of the year for Northeast jet guys.
BVM thanks Rick Boyer, Erik Rudjord, and Dave + Pete Malchione along with the Tri-County Wing Snappers for hosting the event.
