A Tribute to a Great Man

The Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum is changing its flying line-up for European Theater Day to honor World War II pilot and longtime friend of the museum Col. Ralph Jenkins. FHCAM’s Republic P-47D Thunderbolt aircraft is a tribute to the aircraft Jenkins flew in combat as commander of the 510th Fighter Squadron. During the war, Jenkins flew a total of 129 missions, accumulating 329 combat hours.

Seattleite Ralph Jenkins hardly ever missed a FHCAM flying event in which “...his plane,” nicknamed Tallahassee Lassie, took to the skies. Jenkins passed away in May of 2017, just a few days short of his 98th birthday.

In order to complete a “missing man formation” at FHCAM’s upcoming European Day, August 26th, the museum is adjusting the aircraft line-up in order to include Ralph’s venerable American fighter plane.

The “missing man” pass is a traditional ceremony held to honor a fallen aviator. As the combat formation approaches, one aircraft abruptly climbs skyward from the group, leaving a blank space in the formation as it passes overhead.

You can find Col. Jenkin's obituary here: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/seattletimes/obituary.aspx?pid=185509184
