This series of photos is from our last days on Hickam AFB. There are some colorful trees, sunset views from Foster Point (our favorite sunset spot) and the Missing Man Formation Memorial.
One of our favorite places on Hickam Air Force Base in Honolulu, Hawaii is by the Officer's Club along the mouth of Pearl Harbor. Next to the club is a nice park and a paved running path follows along the shoreline. You can watch the huge Navy ships and submarines pass by on their way out to sea or watch a beautiful Hawaiian sunset over the Waianae Mountains from this spot. There are picnic benches and playground areas along this scenic and historic landmark.
One highlight of the mouth of Pearl Harbor is the Missing Man Formation Memorial behind the Officer's Club.
The Missing Man Formation Memorial is a very modern work of art, mounted on a large platform with a walkway and surrounded by huge, orange-colored Birds of Paradise flowers. The peaceful sunset setting is a prefect time to visit this shrine to all those who have flown on into the Big Blue Yonder before us.
