2005 B-50 Medal
2005 Medal BECC members present at the March 24, 2004 club meeting selected the Boeing B-50 as the 2005 medal design. Medals chairman David Buehler reported, "The Boeing B-50 was the overwhelming winner in both the first round and the final round of voting as evidenced by the totals" (47 votes for the B-50 in the final round). The artwork shown here was the basis for making the medal. The legend "FIRST NON-STOP FLIGHT AROUND THE WORLD" calls attention to the history making flight of February 25-March 2, 1949. Production totaled 800 silver medals, 400 pewter medals, and 400 bronze medals. The ordering deadline was December 31, 2004.
See the Boeing history page for the B-50 bomber.
