The 75th Commemoration of the End of WWII-The Coyote Squadron, unit of the Commemorative Air Force, had the honor to fly in solidarity with the State of Hawaii in supporting the WWII Warbirds as they participate in events of “The 75th Commemoration of the End of WWII”. The flight took place over Navarro County on Friday, August 14th.
The Coyote Squadron’s PT-19 ‘Pride of Corsicana’ which is the primary trainer plane used to train pilots during WWII at the Airfield in Corsicana, Texas. The PT-19 was joined by the Squadron’s T-34 which is an advanced trainer used to train pilots for Viet Nam.
Both planes made a flyover to Navarro County much like the event of “United We Fly – Fourth of July” which included these two planes and four member planes. This time the two historic military aircraft, the Fairchild PT-19 and the Beechcraft T-34 took the time to circle around the towns along the way as a way of saying thanks to the American people and especially our Veterans and to pay homage to the End of WWII.
Col Warnie Meisetschleager was the pilot for the Fairchild PT-19 ‘Spirit of Corsicana’, during “The 75th Commemoration of The End of WWII” flight over Navarro County on August 14th. Col Dan Summerly was the pilot for the T-34.
“Salute Their Service, Honor Their Hope” was the theme of the Commemoration in recognition of the veterans and civilians who participated in WWII and contributed to the actions that led to the end of the war.” In Hawaii 14 classic combat aircraft will participate in three Legacy of Peace Aerial Parades taking place over Oahu, the Battleship Missouri Memorial and Pearl Harbor.
