A very large crowd at Centennial Plaza in downtown Midland watched in admiration as the HSW conducted a fly-over to highlight the Star Spangled Salute celebration yesterday evening. The flights consisted of Bill Coombes and Jason Cooper in Bill’s SNJ, Randy Wilson and Keegan Chetwynd in the T-28, Daniel Rathburn and Parker Rathburn in SNJ 101, Alan Haskin and Ryan Linebarger in PT-19, Robin Donnelly in his LC-126, and Steve Bolin and Kris Green in the L-39 Albatros.
While 10 yr old Mackenzie Walker of Lubbock belted out a great version of the Star Spangled Banner, the wing’s time over target was just about perfect. Thanks to Bill Coombes for organizing this wing event and thanks to all who participated, including those support personnel who gave up part of their holiday to help out.
