VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) - Planes flew in a missing man formation over the Flying Circus Aerodome Tuesday in Virginia to celebrate the life of wing walker Jane Wicker.
Wicker and her pilot Charles Schwenker were killed in a plane crash at the Vectren Dayton Air Show in June.
Wicker joined the Flying Circus after responding to an ad for a wing walker in 1990.
Her fiance Rock Skowbo spoke at the memorial and wrote a poem in her honor called Wing Woman.
Wicker's ex-husband Kirk Wicker also spoke at the memorial and says she was a role model and proved that if you have dreams, you can live them.
Wicker spoke to 2 NEWS a day before the deadly crash.
She told us that her signature move was hanging underneath the plane's wing by her feet and sitting on the bottom of the airplane while it's upside-down.
Wicker also said that she was never nervous or scared while performing.
Many of Wicker's colleagues came from around the country Tuesday to pay tribute.
Jana Leigh McWhorter told us back in June that this tragedy won't stop her from taking to the skies. She says it's what Wicker would've wanted.
"We all have this love of aviation and you know we will continue to do this and just as an honor to them," says McWhorter.
That's why she ended the celebration of life by releasing Wicker's ashes from the wing of an airplane as her loved ones said a final goodbye.
A "Celebration of Life" will also take place for 64-year-old pilot Charlie Schwenker on August 3 at the Flying Circus Air Show in Virginia.
Donations can be made in his honor to Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic .
