The Man Who Owned The Sky: Beachey Day

Hiller Aviation Museum
Mar 14, 01:00PM – 03:00PM

The list of Lincoln Beachey’s accomplishments as a pioneer aviator are impressive. Before 1915 he was first to fly upside down, first to fly inside a building, first to master the loop and the first to build and fly a plane exclusively for aerobatics. Lincoln Beachey practically invented aerobatics.

He paid the ultimate price for “pushing the envelope” while flying an experimental monoplane. He plummeted to his death in his crumpled aircraft before thousands of spectators at the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exhibition in San Francisco.

His memory lives on as the “world’s greatest aviator”. On March 14, author and researcher Frank Marrero commemorates the 100th anniversary of Beachey’s demise and celebrates the incredible achievements of Lincoln Beachey, the Man Who Owned The Sky!
