Ray McWhorter At WW1 Overseas Flyer Reunion Ray McWhorter, 76, well-known Burt area farmer, and nis wife attended the second Wprld War I Overseas Flyers Reunion at Dayton, Ohio, June 3-5, and had a wonderful time. Mr. and Mrs. McWhorter, who also attended the first reunion In 1961, flew both ways, with Ray at the controls, In a Cessna, leaving here June 2 due to possible bad weather. The trip, however, was smooth both ways. He is shown in the above photo standing beside his airplane. About 300 WW I Overseas Flyers were in attendance at the reunion - and events during the three days Included dinners and tours, including lengthy visits at Wright-Patterson AFB and the Air Force Museum there. The museum houses many of the planes made famous during World War I, before and since, so the old flyers got a big kick out of recalling memories of overseas action. Mr, McWhorter was featured in a page one story in the Cincinnati Enquirer while they were at Dayton - but perhaps his biggest kick came from meeting and talking with men whom he had not seen for many years.
