7. NOVEMBER MEETING

The November meeting will be held on Tuesday November 8 at the Brunswick Executive Airport (KBXM) at 1930 hours.

Directions:

KBXM is the former site of the Brunswick Naval Air Station (BNAS). From the main entrance, proceed past the large airplane (P-2) on display on your left. If the gate is manned, you will need to stop at the gate house and tell them you are going to a meeting at Flight Level Aviation.

Go approximately 0.8 miles, and when you see the second large airplane (P-3), turn right just before it. The plane is just beyond where you will be turning and it is on the left side of the road.

Continue straight ahead and the road will take you around the far side of Hangar 6. Go in the door near the Flight level Aviation sign.
