Veterans Day at FHC

World War II tactical reconnaissance pilots will unite with other war veterans and community members on Veterans Day to honor the men and women who risked their lives for their country. During World War II, tactical reconnaissance pilots flew fast and low in groups of two, with one flyer scouting and the other covering his activities from attacks by enemy fighters. By patrolling, spotting artillery barrages, assisting in special missions, and shooting photographs that were used by Allied analysts, these veterans influenced the outcome
of the war.

This special Veterans Day event at the Flying Heritage Collection will feature remarks from Governor Christine Gregoire, Congressman Rick Larsen and a panel of veterans recounting their use of modified fighter planes to assist Allied armies near the battlefield. The event will feature local U.S. Army and Royal Air Force reconnaissance pilots who will discuss their first-hand perspectives of World War II and its impact on our country.
