Liaison Squadron Flyover and Ceremony at Cannon Field
Alamo Liaison Squadron performed a ceremonial missing man flyover at Cannon Field on Saturday to honor a U.S. Air Force veteran and longtime volunteer at Cannon Field. Richard Roberts departed our company in June of this year and in fulfillment of his and a his family’s wishes a gathering was organized at the airport. Color guard from the U.S. Air Force was present to perform funeral honors complete with the sounding of Taps, flag folding and presentation to the family.
Following the service squadron members boarded their aircraft for the four-ship flyover.
Roberts was a regular participant in ALS activities, actively involved in business operations, as well as the maintenance of aircraft, equipment and facilities. The squadron is forever grateful for his efforts. He will be remembered fondly for his tireless work and, indeed, his friendship.
Once again, members of Alamo Liaison Squadron are grateful to participants like Richard Roberts, their families, and friends whose dedication makes the flying museum’s mission a continued success. Your presence on this day was true celebration of the life of one of our own.
