TEHACHAPI, Calif. - 400 United States flags are being retired with honor at the Coy Burnett Stadium in Tehachapi.
The ceremony opened with one of NASA's F-15 fighter planes flying over.
Assemblywoman Shannon Grove spoke at the vent.
The flyover is in honor of one of the nation's most respected aerospace engineers, Bill Dana.
Dana passed away in May, but worked for NASA for 40 years and lived in Tehachapi most of his life.
The 400 flags that were too worn out to be repaired were handed over to the Boy Scouts who burned them in a dignified manner.
