When the local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association met Friday, May 10, Tyler Voss was on the agenda. He and two others, Capt. Victoria Pinckney and Tech Sgt. Herman Mackey III, died in the May 3rd crash of a KC135 tanker aircraft in support of the war in Afghanistan. Voss was a member of the EAA chapter and was rebuilding a homebuilt aircraft in their hangar. So friends and colleagues showed up to honor Voss and the EAA organizers recruited the flyover pilots to perform the “missing man” formation, where a single plane, trailing smoke, pulls away from the other three planes and slowly flies away.
