75th End of WWII Commemoration Sept 2nd
« on: August 28, 2020, 07:07:36 PM »
For those who want to view the ceremony on the USS Missouri and the historical aircraft flyover of Pearl Harbor:
https://www.75thwwiicommemoration.org/live

Times posted are for Hawaii Standard Time.  Some of the aircrat: B-25, Stearman Biplane, PBY Ctalinea, P51 Mustang, TBM Avenger, F8F Bearcat, FM2 Wildcat, T-28 Trojan, AT-6 Texans, Stearman and more.  Many shipped in from west coast (San Diego) via Navy aircraft carrier last week.  Some aircraft nave been practicing and flying over my house.  Wonderful to watch and hear.  You pilots and historians know a lot about these winged warriors.

Some tribute flyovers  of the airbases on Oahu that were attacked earlier on Dec 7 before the attack on Pearl Harbor are happening this weekend.  Those are not being shown live on the web, however.

So, do I have to have facebook to watch any of the coverage? Or somehow click on something on the given website on those particular days?

Theres nothing like the sound of a Merlin or a big Wright Cyclone radial. I had a B25, navy Corsair, and a P51 fly low formation over my house once and it knocked my socks off.

Thanks for the heads up
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road
