In Memory of Donald Dirr

In Memory of Donald W. Dirr “Donnie”

December 7th, 1954 ~ September 12th, 2013

Don

The Pilot

Someday we will know, where the pilots go
When their work on earth is through.
Where the air is clean, and the engines gleam,
And the skies are always blue.
They have flown alone, with the engine’s moan,
As they sweat the great beyond,
And they take delight, at the awesome sight
of the world spread far and yon.

Yet not alone, for above the moan, when the earth is
out of sight,
As they make their stand, He takes their hand,
and guides them through the night.
How near to God are these men of sod,
Who step near death’s last door?
Oh, these men are real, not made of steel,
But He knows who goes before,

And how they live, and love and are beloved,
But their love is most for air.
And with death about, they will still fly out,
And leave their troubles there.
He knows these things, of men with wings,
And He knows they are surely true.
And He will give a hand, to such a man
‘Cause He’s a pilot too.

— Leo Hymas.

May you Fly High and Always in Blue Skies!

You will be Missed Comrade.

D.O.G.S. canceled – please help

UPDATE I have talked to the Base Officials this week and they have given us the FINAL WORD on the AIRSHOW for this year.

THE 2013 DOGS AIRSHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO THE GOVERMENT CUTBACKS.

Sorry this is out of our hands at this point. I wanted to let folks know a soon as possible so folks could make other plans for the holiday weekend be it attend family get togethers or other flying events.

We spoke about the options moving forward and they said things look better for the 2014 year but as we all know by now NOTHING IS FOR SURE. So plan on 2014 and we will keep you updated.

Fly Safe and see you all in 2014.

 

We’ll inform you ASAP in case we can locate a temporary alternate flying site – please support us by posting comments to our Facebook page – Thanks!

From the DOGS show committee
