Rites of Passage

February was an emotional month for us. Sadly, we lost Hubby Docs beloved Father, Obbie O. Atkinson. He died from injuries sustained in an small airplane crash. An amazing tribute was held at the Estrella Warbird Museum, attended by a couple hundred people. He was one of the driving forces in getting the museum to its present state. Several buildings, full of memorabilia, a library, and many beautiful old airplanes. He also was a member of the Freedom Flight pilots, who did fly overs for services of deceased military men. Fifteen airplanes were involved in the fly over for Dad. Quite a tribute, indeed. We'll miss you Dad, happy flying with all your angel buddies.
