Ready for take-off. Our seats were just below the top turret gunner's position.
A wedding is a celebration of happiness and unification....
...We are gathered to share in this with Planedancer and Flightdawg, who are so wonderfully suited to one another
Planedancer takes a "moment" to ponder the "I do" question
Exchanging rings at altitude and saying vows over headsets
The big Kiss!
Flightdawg forgets cameras are recording every move!
After landing, the newlyweds moved to the nose of the "Panchito" for some pictures
Showing the rings of matrimony to the crowd
This wedding wouldn't have been so wonderful if it wasn't for the following people: Tom Reilly (flying right seat) of Flying Tigers Warbird Museum of Kissimmee, Florida who restored "Panchito", Larry Kelley who owned and captained the ship.
