I was the pilot of one of the airplanes. Like Gina said we did a flyover for my boss who passed away. We were in a holding pattern over cedar rapids waiting to be called in for the the flyover.

This was in honor of my dad Perry Walton who passed away Sept 30th. The three planes and helicopter did a missing man flight formation over his grave site burial. Perry owned the Marion Airport. His legacy will live on trough is wife Jan.
