Celebration of Life Party for Capt. Nick Tramontano
Waterbury-Oxford Airport, Oxford, CT April 16, 2016
Nick & Sandy at the Fantasy of Flight Museum, Polk City, FL, March 2013.
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.
