Default RV pilots honor fallen Navy Veteran

I'm sure the pilots in this formation are known on the forum. When I spotted this story it made me proud of my country and my community. Even though I'm a former Air Force guy, around these parts we love our Navy community.

Great story, thanks for posting. As a former Naval Aviator, very happy to see the RV community step and fill the void that?s been caused by the pandemic. RIP LeRoy Honsinger.

Having just been a part of one of these fly overs 2 months ago, it is an awesome feeling to be able to honor someone via our passion and hobby.

I had honour to fly with dreamland squadron last year for one of these missing
man formations, and it was a breath taking tribute to a fallen hero !
