USAF & McKenna Honor Lt Col. Hoagland With P-51 / F-22 Arlington Flyover

IMG_0034WARBIRD RADIO – P-51 Mustang owner and pilot Andrew McKenna, along with the Warrior Flight Team has once again answered the call to honor one of our nation’s heroes. This Thursday December 5th, McKenna along with a flight of United States Air Force F-22’s flew over of Arlington National Cemetery for the interment of Lt Col Edward Carl “EC” Hoagland, USAF.

According to the Warrior Flight Team’s website, Lt Col Hoagland’s 21 years of military service spanned World War II and the Korean War. From the ranks of enlisted gunner to a command pilot, his career was filled with historical milestones such as the birth of the US Air Force and the first operational jet fighters. His service continued beyond his military retirement as an Admissions Liaison Officer for the US Air Force Academy. In this capacity, his influence helped to shape the future of the Air Force’s leaders.

In a 2001 interview, Lt Col Hoagland said, “The Air Force was good to me, even with the wars. I relished everything I did, and have always been proud of the AF Academy, the values it represents, and the completed product—the Air Force Officers it graduates”.

During the flyover Mr. McKenna’s P-51 wore the name: CHOOCH II in honor of Lt. Col. Hoagland’s WWII P-51.  For more information on the Warrior Flight Team just click the Quick Link posted below.
