27th Annual Salute to Veterans Memorial Day Celebration and Airshow Brings Variety of Aerial Honors to Fallen Veterans
By Carmelo Turdo
The 27th Annual Salute to Veterans Memorial Day Celebration and Airshow at Columbia, MO Regional Airport honored fallen veterans in a variety of ways.  Today's post highlights the variety of ground and aerial activities that have become traditions at the event:  display of current and World War II-era military aircraft with their crews available to interact with visitors; U.S. Army Golden Knights performance; presentation of honored guests with previous military service; and aerial salutes to veterans of all eras.  We focus on today's display of the McDonnell Douglas/Boeing C-17 airlifter, U.S. Army Golden Knights precision parachute performance, and airshows provided by U.S. Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey, F/A-18E Super Hornet, T-33 Ace Maker, T-28 Trojan, and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds.
