Medal of Honor Parade and Fly-Over

An annual program at Gainesville, Texas honors Medal of Honor recipients.

Our intrepid Cold War Air Museum associates, Jon and Miguel took flight shortly after O'dark-thirty last Saturday to arrive in time for the required pre-flight brief.

Arriving early, they got the chance to watch and photograph the arrival of more planes this year than last. The weather this year was better than it was for last year's event. More pictures of the participating aircraft can be found on Miguel's Flickr page.

The flyers had an opportunity before the parade to visit and pose with the men being honored.

As in previous years, Yaks and CJ's joined in formation flight over the parade to honor the Medal recipients.

With this beautiful B-25 joining the group, Jon got another opportunity to get his picture in the blog.

Thanks once again to Miguel for his excellent photography, More pictures of this year's event can be found on his Flickr page. For coverage from last year's event click here.
