This is a very "different" monument, but I cannot imagine a more poignant, albeit transient, tribute to an aviation hero than seeing the missing man formation. During an air show in Cape Town, the 2006 AAD, a pilot tragically lost his life. The next day the missing man formation was executed by his team mates as a tribute during the air show.
