Carnations Away!

Repurposing a bomber plane?

Great idea. All you pacific and visionary generals, look to the skies of Palm Springs, California. There for the 14th year in a row, a B-25 bomber dropped carnations in honor of fallen veterans this Memorial Day.

Three Beechcraft T-34s scored the sky in the “Missing Man” formation and then the B-25 opened up, releasing 3000 red and white flowers over the Palm Springs Air Museum.
