Local pilots from Bowman Regional Airport (BWW) flew a tribute on May 29, 2020, to show support and say thank you to local area doctors, nurses, EMT’S, police, firemen, teachers, business owners, farmers, ranchers, military, and others who have kept their communities going and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brent Kline, BWW Airport Manager, organized the event with the route overflying Bowman, Scranton, Gascoyne, Bucyrus, and Hettinger. Taking place in conjunction with BWW’s five-year anniversary, pilots tested their skill with flag drops on targets for discounted fuel price prizes. A pizza party followed for pilots and families. Rodney Schaaf, Airport Chairman, said after two months of virus “ hibernation,” it was a great way to get airborne again!
