MISSING MAN FORMATION FLYOVER:

Members of the Williams Lake Flying Club did a Remembrance Day flyover encompassing the “missing man formation.”

The Williams Lake Tribune Advisor was invited along for the flight by pilot Don Stanchfield.

The flight included five planes in a V-formation led by Ron Kaufman, followed by Marty Lauren in second, Stanchfield in third, Lloyd Como in fourth and Cameron Linde in fifth place.

The club has been doing the flyover since about 2002.

Watch a future edition of the Williams Lake Tribune for more on this story.
