The Missing Man

Designed with the classic Airplanes involved in WWII.
The lead plane is aP-51 Mustang, below that is a P-38 Lightning, the classic Spitfire is making the move towards heaven.
The back row shows the Lancaster Bomber, a DC 3 that took the Para troopers to their jumps as well as a B-25 Mitchell Bomber.
The missing man formation is now performed at every air show, the Missing Man Formation originated during the Second World War. If a flight crew or single pilot was shot down during a mission on the return flight home their position in the squad’s battle formation would be left empty. This signified that although they were no longer physically present, they were never forgotten.
