The TBM Avengers Salute to Veterans - A Review

63 years in the making........

On May 19, 2018, a Squadron of 16 TBM Avengers flew over Northern Illinois and it was the first time since 1955.......

63 years ago, that a group that large has flown in one place...

at one time...


That event was 63 years in the making!

 

2019 is a new year and a whole NEW show!!!



"It was an excellent tribute to our Vet's. We enjoyed it. It seemed to run without a flaw." 

"First time to this event, it was excellent. Already looking forward to next year.. Thank You for all you are doing for the Veterans and keeping this history alive.. God's Speed. Pastor Mark D. Amenda Streator, Illinois." 

 It was a memorable moment for all! Many thanks to all who gave their time to help Salute our Veterans!! As we receive more photos and videos, we plan to share all of them here! Feel free to contact us to share your videos and photos using the form below.
