A Celebration of Life Party was held on April 16th, 2016 for Capt. Nick Tramontano in a hangar at the Waterbury-Oxford Airport in Oxford, CT. It was an extraordinary event, including a missing-man flyover by a DC-3 and three T-6s. I estimate that there were at least 200 attendees; some coming from as far as Florida. I apologize for any omissions.
