A big congratulations to the newest recipient of the BD-6 Fuselage kit. The Bede Family Foundation was excited to donate the kit to EAA Chapter 690 from Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, GA. The Bede Family Foundation is excited to play a role in assisting Billy Stewart, President of EAA Chapter 690, broaden the interest and knowledge of aviation with the youth in their community.
