Default D-Day is Sunday, any special RC events?

I got a call early this week from someone planning special memorial services on Sunday and asked if a few of us could fly a demonstration, perferable our missing man formation with 4 Mustangs. Over past few years, a group of us have been doing the missing man formation with our warbirds and has really taken off with the local public. So now we are going to do it on Sunday after the special memorial service at the cemetary. This will be the second time I will be flying at a cemetary. It will be worth it to be able to dedicate our time, effort, and satisfaction of RC to such a noble event.

Anyone else do or is doing anything over the memorial day or D-Day weekends?

Being a WWII European vet I will hoist my flag and say an extra prayer.

I will just spend a quiet day reflecting on what those fine men did 60 years ago and give up a prayer for them and thank the vets for the sacrifices during that war, one vet to another, 'thank you and God bless!'.

Special event. Yes, the 2nd seasonal FAI F3A contest and then a drive to Bastonge to lay flowers.

We couldn't fly because of the weather and I had engine trouble, but we got to eat a nice dinner and spend time with a lot of vets and hearing stories. Many of these folks are in the eighties, yet get them together and they act like they were all 18 again. What a pleasant time.
