We call it Halos and Heroes. It’s an annual event held in a hangar that houses a breathtaking array of vintage aircraft and honors the sacrifices of great men and women who have nobly served their country. The “Halos” are volunteer Angel Flight pilots who transport patients in their own planes to specialized treatment and assume all the associated costs. The “Heroes” are veterans–especially wounded warriors and their families–who have paid a heavy price for the freedoms we enjoy. These pilots and warriors, invited guests and staff members gathered on October 6 at the Virginia Beach Airport and Military Aviation Museum for an unforgettable evening as described through the images and words of this album.
