Good stuff.

Thanks for posting something positive.

Makes you think about why his son became a pilot. I have a good guess.

Angel Flight

Witness 2 of them when a fallen solider in combat makes his finally flight home, listening to the communication of the pilot and air traffic controller, Angel flight 51 your number 1 for take off from ATL to RDU flying at Godspeed to RDU, they put all inbound and out bound traffic on hold or in a holing pattern, Angel Flight 51 your cleared for landing followed by Welcome Home Angel flight 51 when touching down - upon arrival, they are meet by firetrucks showering the plane with 4 powerful streams of water from both sides of the plane, Fallen Soldier are escorted and flown home Honorably then greeted by military personnel, local police, fire department and local government officials all attend to pay final respect to a solider who gave up their life for our freedom - Family member are allowed on the tarmac to welcome there loved one home- watching the casket come down the belt-loader greeted with hugs from loved ones brings many tears from passengers who are asked to stay on board until the fallen solder's body is greeted by family members and carried away by the honor guards to the Hurst for the soldiers ride to their finally resting places. It's moment I'll never forget.
