Missing Man

Today their mission was to be
peaceful remembrance sad event
When best in spectator view
Highlight of the show would begin

They'd practiced over and over
So that today's would be perfect
In formation at chosen spot
From first file flying lower left

the plane, rather the bird, peeled left
Were it not for show it would have 
spiraled down probably in flames
Pilot and crew meet their Maker

Show will go on another town
Pilot and crew will die for them

They do remind me of precision flyers, especially in fall when they are travelling. Loved this, Jim.

Great response to the picture.
My Mum always said to keep away from air shows in case of accidents. My late husband Andrew, as a young man in England, narrowly escaped death on just such an occasion.
