The rumbling roar of large round engines told of a formation of WW II era airplanes flying by. Once rulers of the sky, the few such aircraft that remain are treasured memories of a different era that must never be forgotten. They flew by on Memorial Day in route to ceremonies nearby, leaving behind echoes of awe that shook the surrounding buildings and trees.

One thought on “Warbird Salute”
So true! Our history is of immense importance. We’ll be celebrating a piece of it this coming weekend at Jim’s HMX-1 Presidential Helicopter Squadron reunion. Over the years we have been fortunate to meet and visit with some of the pilots who flew for past presidents, including the first who flew for President Eisenhower. What a fine gentleman!
