Vietnam-era fliers buried side-by-side at Arlington

Recommended Posts

That's when a group of volunteer pilots from the non-profit Warrior Flight Team (http://www.warrioraviation.org/external-link.png) stepped in and agreed to fly in formation above the Arlington ceremony in their own planes, on their own dime.

 

Eight civilian pilots honored the veterans, arranging permission from the Department of Homeland Security, Secret Service, and FAA with an aerial tribute above Washington.

 

They even flew a Douglas A26 Invader - the same plane that the two friends from Georgia were flying when they were shot down 44 years ago. It was flanked by 2 P51 Mustangs.
