Here we are for another week. Today we’re sitting on a virtual runway near an old WWII aircraft. Our hostess for this weekly gathering is the talented and gracious writer and artist, Rochelle Wisoff Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to write an original story with no more than 100 words not including the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was requested by C.E. Ayr and supplied by Rich Voza. Thanks, C.E., and Rich.

ONE LAST TIME by P.S. Joshi
The WWII fighter plane the Grumman F6F Hellcat was sitting on the runway near the hanger. It was due to make its last flight in the air show the next day. Its WWII pilot, Col. George Pringle, Rtd. was supposed to be present. It was all ready to go.
The night before the flight a call was received at the local U.S. Air Force office. Sadly, Col. Pringle had died suddenly that day.
The next morning the plane was found to have been flown.
“Well,” said an old buddy. “George flew her one last time.”
