Rally remembering Central grad is Saturday

If the weather is right, 10 planes from the Blackjack Squadron will do a flyby before Central Washington University's homecoming football game on Saturday to honor and remember Central graduate San DeWayne Francisco, who died in military service in 1968.

The Blackjack Squadron, founded in 1989 by three airline captains, is a Washington-based group of pilots who share a passion for formation flying and aerobatics. The Blackjacks donate their time to provide flybys in the spirit of community service, to honor members of the aviation community, and to pay tribute to the U.S. armed forces.
