The 21-aircraft Missing Man Maneuver that the US Navy will perform in the next hour or so is going to be EPIC to watch. 41 is being brought from the train station to the burial site now.

If someone can bring together all the special moments of this #Remembering41 week it would be a beautiful documentary to watch. There have been so many moments.

The train journey was so nice. I am glad the family are about to have private time without the cameras.
I'm part way through preparing my photo threads covering the funeral week. The more photos available, the longer it takes to prioritize which ones to share. It will be worth the wait.

Here is an iconic photo from inside the train today. Lots of people lined the route.
The 21-aircraft Missing Man Maneuver was everything I hoped it would be, and more.

I will link a decent video of it soon. I watched it on a local TV channel and saw it all but apparently several national cable networks cut it off before the best part. So clueless of them.
OFFICIAL US Navy⚓️ video: 21-jet flyover #Remembering41

Watch R of screen: 1 lead jet, then 4 x 4 jets then a long moment of silence. Wait patiently.

Then watch L of screen for the best part at the end.

Not #CAVU but a perfect flyover.

Also, ...

I want you to see the context in which the flyover occurred. The band played the national anthem while servicemen held the casket. After the flyover they played Holy, Holy, Holy.

A well edited video combining that scene with the flyover will be good.

Three tweets that tell us what happened in the remainder of the ceremony. Beautiful.

Another great view of the end of the flyover.

And another view of the flyover. This is the best one I've seen so far showing what it the MMM looked like:
