Memorial Day – Remembering those who gave all:

Angel Flight  music and lyrics by Darden Smith and Radney Foster

For our armed forces, Angel Flights are US Air Force missions, frequently C-130s piloted and crewed by members of the Air National Guard, flying fallen military members home.  Though not an official military designation, “Angel Flight” is also frequently used as a call sign when carrying fallen heroes.

The angel flare patterns shown in the video and photo are used almost exclusively for defensive, and rarely for honor purposes, but it’s fitting to see images depicting them in the context of these flights for Memorial Day.
