History on display in flyover

Flight scheduled during Wreaths Across America

SEQUIM — A quick glimpse of David Woodcock’s 1944 Piper Cub L-48 will be available later this month.

He is scheduled to fly over Sequim View Cemetery, 1505 Sequim-Dungeness Way, during the Wreaths Across America event Dec. 18.

The event will be hosted by the Michael Trebert Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

The flyover will be 77 years after the start of the Battle of the Bulge, which took place Dec. 16, 1944.

Those who want to see it up close will have a chance during an Armed Forces Day celebration planned for May 21, 2022, in Port Angeles, Woodcock said.

That event will look to include a fly-in with the Cascade Warbirds group and participation from the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program.

Woodcock, who hopes to take part in World War II reenactments with a group called Friends of Willie and Joe, said he hopes to give folks a chance to see the L-4H and other military planes and vehicles, particularly the younger visitors.

“It’s important to try to instill kids with the memory of all of this history,” he said.
