Default Big Weekend of Flying, 13 ship and Pearl Harbor

This weekend the Louisville Kentucky group (aka Smoke On Aviation) had a big weekend.

On Sunday a formation practice was scheduled out of KBAK (Columbus Indiana). Dave has been working with some local Bi-Plane guys on formation flying, how to follow FFI standards, etc. and this was a good chance for a checkup to see how they were doing. Close Intel showed they were doing great and a lot of hard work put in by them.

Yesterday the Smoke On group continued with flying and was about to be a small part of honoring Welborn Lee Ashby who was Killed on the USS West Virginia during the Pearl Harbor attack, with his remains only recently identified thru DNA in the last couple years. This weekend was the day they brought him back to his hometown and final resting spot.
