Memorial Day flight

On Memorial Day, owners of flying World War II aircraft are in high demand. If you’re in the Twin Cities, you’ve probably seen some of them flying over the Capitol and various parades and Memorial Day celebrations.

Here, a T-6 returns to South St. Paul after a morning flight.

They’re not cheap to fly. The use about 30 gallons of fuel per hour. A gallon of aviation fuel at South St. Paul goes for about $3.84 a gallon.

    saw two “warbirds” in formation flyover my house today. Took pause, and prayed.
