Prayers for the families

Carlos Ponce

My prayers go out to the friends and families of those who lost their lives. My dad served aboard an aircraft carrier USS Shipley Bay CVE-85 in World War II and loved seeing those old war birds in the air above Galveston. I hope this does not the deter those who preserve the history of these fine aircraft at the Museum. Keep them flying!

Prayers to all involved. It is such a shame about the plane, but a true tragedy about the plane.

The pilot has been identified as 51-year-old Keith Hibbet, and the passenger has been identified as 66-year-old John Stephen, a United Kingdom native who was visiting Texas with his wife to celebrate their 41st wedding anniversary.

Can't agree with Don223 on this one. It's a privilege to see the warbirds in the air over Galveston. My dad was in B-17s during WW II, and I spent 36 years in the aircraft business before retiring. To me the airplanes are even better than the seagulls and pelicans. Makes me feel at home.

RIP, and Keep 'em Flying!
