Labels: Home built airplane
In the picture Phil just finished explaining how he chose the numbers N915PB for his home built plane shown in the picture. N is required by US law for all planes in this category. 91 is the year Phil married his wife Jennifer. 5 is the number of children they have. PB is Phil Beachy's initials. Should never forget that number.
He has recently taken it on the maiden flight, "it is fun to fly" Phil said. This picture was taken at the Bonners Ferry airport inside the hanger built and owned by Phil and his brother Dan, who also has his own plane. Two more brothers in Missouri, Dennis and Ronnie have planes of their own. Ronnie built his from a kit. A flying family for sure. They are the sons of Elmer & Millie (Mast) Beachy of Florida.

Autumn Beachy, seated center, with her parents Brenda and Marcus Beachy. Standing are DeKalb girls track coach Cole Krebs, left, and Baron cross country coach Rowland, right. Autumn has committed to compete in track and cross country at Purdue University. Autumn Beachy started running cross country in seventh grade to stay in shape for basketball. She had no background in running. Her parents weren’t runners. She didn’t particularly have an affinity for it. “I like it more than basketball right now,” Beachy said. “I just love the competitiveness and pushing myself.” Beachy has become what Perez calls “the poster child” for the tradition-rich DeKalb program. A string of all-state runners stretch nearly back to the early 1970s. Beachy is sort of a living legend. Beachy’s unflinching determination is one of her strongest traits, DeKalb coach Rowland Perez said. We are all cheering for you Autumn.
