Event Navigation

A National Day of Remembrance will be held as a Facebook Live event at 10 a.m. on the same day as the Will Rogers and Wiley Post Fly-In. This ceremony will mark the tragic loss of the lives of Will Rogers and Wiley Post. The service will also honor all those who have lost their lives in a small airplane crash. This event will be held on Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/WRBirthplace.

For this event, a special commemorative lapel pin featuring an image of Will Rogers will be given away as a free gift to family members who have lost a loved one in a small plane accident. The pin carries Will Rogers’s quote “She’s a beautiful day and we are flying high.” Those interested in nominating a loved one can email wrinfo@willrogers.com to request a pin.
