Letter: We note passing of Bob Odegaard

The USS Minnesota Commissioning Committee would like to extend condolences to the family of Bob Odegaard, and the Fargo AirSho team, on the passing of an air show legend.

We appreciate what both Mr. Odegaard and the show team have done to keep alive the memory of “The Greatest Generation” by flying period aircraft.

It’s unfortunate that Odegaard won’t see the commissioning of USS North Dakota SSN 783, which honors the great state of North Dakota.

Through my company’s continued support of the Fargo AirSho, I was able to see Odegaard fly dozens of times. The skies will be emptier next year over Hector International Airport.

Skon is co-chairman, USS Minnesota Commissioning Committee.
