The County crew recently completed runway field maintenance which included re-painting the runway striping. Additionally, they were asked to clean up the overgrown edge of the far side of the runway. However; an unintended hazard has been created because that work created a ‘trench’ along the edge that is now a HAZARD for landing if you go off the runway. On Sat.

Managed to complete project I volunteered to do. Repainted the Precision Aerobatics (Pattern) poles today that mark the center of two aerobatic ‘boxes’ used by precision aerobatics pilots to help place their maneuvers correctly. They also help judges access the pilot’s maneuvers when being judged. Hope to see a contest return to BCF. (M. Wise)
