41 gonna get a 21 Fighter flyover in Texas on Thursday. Unprecedented. Hope Bush sees it whereever

he is now. Hope they show pictures of all the planes they're using. Here's the groups flying. Men were men then.

Aircraft from Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 103, the “Jolly Rogers”; VFA-143, the “Pukin’ Dogs”; VFA-32, the “Swordsmen”; VFA-83, the “Rampagers”; VFA-131, the “Wildcats”; VFA-105, the “Gunslingers”; VFA-31, the “Tomcatters”; and VFA-87, the “Golden Warriors,” all departed Oceana today ahead of their participation in the flyover.

1. Not a big fan of Bush 41.....but he was a WW11 Vet.

Gotta thank him for that.

2. I wasn't a fan of him either, but when someone dies who had even some honor, I celebrate that and

hope, in return, people will give me the same consideration.

6. Not a big 41 or 43 fan but

It chokes me up to see the ceremony conducted in his honor with all its pageantry.

How the media can make disgusting political comments during the man's funeral is truly primitive.

10. ????

I didn't see any disgusting political comments during the funeral.

When and where did this happen?

And who was disrespectful?

11. When Trump walked into the church and sat down

Some Yahoo on the Fox network said when Trump walked in, a chill came over the people.

Completely inappropriate.

4. I kinda wish it were vintage period aircraft considering he was a combat pilot.

7. It would be too hard to organize, plus there might be a rule against it

There are no flying warbirds in the US Military inventory, their all civilian owned. It would take time to gather enough for a flyover.

A solo Avenger would be a nice touch, if anything we could see that

9. Every fighter in US inventory is a warbird, but i get what you mean

The USAF/USN/USMC has no Memorial flight like the RAF's one
