Bede BD-2 N937BD. at Rockford, Illinois in 1967

Bede BD-2 N937BD. at Rockford, Illinois in 1967. Powered by a 225hp modified Continental IO-360C, this heavily rebuilt Schweizer 2-32 sailplane was intended for a globe-circling, non-refuelled flight that never made it that far. In Nov 1969 Jim Bede made a record flight of more than 70 hours, covering almost 9, 000 miles. He took off with 451 gallons of fuel and had 121 gallons left when he was forced to land after an electrical failure. Date: 1967
