Perry Sisson is organizing another World Domination event. The name will be “World Domination II; a Swift Takeover”. The date of this new event will be June 12, 2016. The object will again be to see how many Swift’s we can get airborne in a single 24 hour period…… regardless of location or duration of flight. It doesn’t matter where you are located or what time you fly. Just go fly your Swift on that day and report it to Perry. More information will be forthcoming via the newsletter, website, your regional Swift Wing and Facebook.
In 2012 during “World Domination; the Day of the Swift, we had 101 Swift’s fly in 4 different countries, 32 were in the air at the exact same time and 136.2 hours of flying time were logged on that single day.
The 2016 World Domination event could very well include twice as many countries and upwards of 150 airplanes. June 12th was selected because that is the scheduled departure day of the National Swift Fly-In in Athens, TN.
We will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of The Swift and are expecting at least 70 Swifts. The potential of 70 plus Swift’s departing gives us a huge jump on Swifter’s participating in the event.
