MIDWEST CITY, Okla. - Hundreds of Oklahomans in one community took time to pay their respects to our nation's veterans.

On Friday, Midwest City hosted its annual Veterans Day Parade, which featured planes from Tulsa, marching bands, displays from Tinker Air Force Base, ROTC units, Shriner's and a float for the Disabled American Veterans.

The parade kicked off with a flyover of two F-16's representing the 138th Fighter Wing out of Tulsa.

Guests were then treated to a flyover featuring the War Birds, a vintage World War II aircraft group from Tulsa. The War Birds flew T-6 Texan aircrafts, which are single-engine advanced trainer aircraft that were used to train pilots in the US Army Air Force, US Navy, Royal Air Force and others during World War II.

Thank you to all of our nation's veterans!
