Final Flight

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.

Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

General George S Patton, Jr.

THE FADING SOUND OF ROTOR BLADES

AS OUR FRIENDS DEPART ON THEIR FINAL MISSION

This “Final Flight” section is for honoring and remembering those members of the Air Force helicopter family.   Our friends will always be remembered as the great persons they were and for the part they played in our Air Force life.

 Some may not have been a member of USAF ROTORHEADS however they were friends of members. Had they been given the opportunity they would have been welcomed to the group.

NOTE: Those members of the Air Force helicopter family that were lost during armed conflict are honored on the “Armed Conflict” and “SEA KIA/MIA” pages of the website.
