Warbirds Flyover Team
“Ladies and gentlemen, performing today’s aerial tribute is The Warbirds Flyover Team. Specializing in precision formation, The Warbirds are led by former Naval Carrier aviator and combat veteran, Hank Gibson of Jacksonville, Florida. A Naval Academy graduate, he flew the A-7 Corsair and FA-18 Hornet strike aircraft and has arrested landings aboard 7 different aircraft carriers. Now a corporate pilot, Hank and his team perform National Anthem flyovers for the NFL, NCAA, NASCAR, PGA and other corporate entities and Veteran’s groups.
Team members are all veterans of the uniformed services and truly understand the dedication and sacrifice that our men and women are making daily worldwide.
Flying the post-World War II Nanchang CJ-6 and YAK-52, the popular radial engine powered military trainers which we call the “trophies of the Cold War” make the crowd pleasing distinctive rumble of yesteryear and make a terrific formation platform.
Today we celebrate the freedom of flight and honor all of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our great nation and way of life. The other pilots today are Richard Langer from Ocala, Florida – Jimmy Burke from Lawrenceville, Ga – Matt Lazar from Carrolton, GA and Wayne Altman from Savannah, GA.
