To those of you who have experienced the death of a pet or animal during any time period that was special and beloved to you:

#TheAviators  –   @theaviatorsclub  is a Twitter club (organization) of goggled anipals that Twitter fly Quarterly Tribute Missions.

The Quarterly Tribute Mission – OTRB Remembrance Day – is for honoring and remembering pets and animals that have passed away.  OTRB means “Over The Rainbow Bridge”.

Please see the Time Zones and Cities Chart further below in this post for the scheduled time in your part of the world.  Each flight is a one hour program. 

Invite

Club members (Twitter flyers) prepare their own tribute lists and bring them to their flights.  We invite YOU,  both humans and anipal Twitter accounts to remember (tweet your OTRB pictures and/or memories) during these #TheAviators Quarterly Flights.

HOW TO TAKE PART and JOIN-IN 

YOU CAN REMEMBER a pet or number of pets that have gone OTRB at anytime in your lives and YOU ARE WELCOME TO DO SO.  Simply tweet in remembrances of your departed pet (pets) with a picture or a few tweets of  your great memories, using the hash tag #TheAviators in each of your tweets. (No need to put in a twitter address,  just the hash tag #TheAviators works well.)

#TheAviators Hash Tag Tweet Page ( ALL TWEETS as shown on direct Twitter) to be able to follow the flight program 

Special note to the anipal hash tag groups we send this invitation to – if you need to include your hash tag with ours to tweet-in, we are ok with that.   An example would be like a pet gone OTRB that is a #wlf member  (#wlf means Whiskers Liberation Front). 

Guests with  protected tweets locked account that want to be seen in the hash tag stream during the mission will need to unlock your account to be seen in the #TheAviators hash tag stream.

#TheAviators fly twice on October 17, 2015 – so that pets world-wide may be remembered at the time most convenient to those who would like to  honor them with tweets.    Each Flight is a one hour program. 

October 17, 2015   –  Time Zones and Cities Chart – Select the city closest to where you live for both sessions, check the time.  Then choose the session and time that is most convenient for you.  Clicking on the chart will enlarge for better reading/viewing.   Mission Leaders will be announced once they have volunteered and comfirmed.

Flyers Step 2:   Prepare your personal tribute list in advance.

Who are you going to tweet tribute for this flight?

 Family pet members (from any time period who have passed away), close pals and friends? – – – ->  Simply gather their picture(s) if you have available and think about what you would like to say in your tweet or tweets. If you have no pictures, then it is fine to tweet your memories.  Remember to use #TheAviators hash tag in each tweet. Sample tribute tweets are posted at the bottom of this blog post. If you as a flyer do not have specific pet or pets to remember, our Twitter guests will always appreciate a retweet of their remembrances.  

We send a public invitation for guests to take part and join-in. 

 Remember OTRB with #TheAviators –  17 OCTOBER INVITE FOR TWITTER PUBLIC  – For people and pals who have had pets pass away at any past time they would like to tweet-in and remember during our flights.  You are welcome to refer all pals to this invitation blog post.   

Overview of a sample flight:

This is a small example (sample) flight of our part as one plane flying in  a  tribute mission.

—-> The Aviators Club  @theaviatorsclub welcomes and requests that all #TheAviators remember this is a solemn occasion and to please remember to fly and tweet with polite decorum.

—–>The Aviators Club @theaviatorsclub will introduce your Flight Team Leader.

Flight Team Leader prompts pilots into the air requesting they use their call signs while circling around #TheAviators aerodrome .

We  then tweet:

Tango Delta Whiskey 33 – TDW33 – Captains Taz and Daisy – present for #TheAviators Tribute Mission (picture link)

3DogsWhite Avatar

Poem and Prayer followed by Missing Man (Friend) Formation  happens,  then Flight Team Leader requests all #TheAviators  to call who they are flying for this flight.

We tweet:

TDW33 flies for all the OTRB departed in loving memory of our brother Captain Buddy #TheAviators (picture link)

Captain Buddy In Memoriam

TDW33 then begins tweeting tribute tweets of anipals departed OTRB that we actually know and/or have been specifically asked to remember.

Flight Team Leader calls for tributes tweet from families, friends, guests that have pets departed OTRB  that they would like to remember.

This is OPEN PROGRAM time.  Pals, families, friends, guests can begin tweeting  using the hash tag – #TheAviators  – all aviators (including us) continue our own tribute tweets during OPEN PROGRAM time.

Based on our own personal account Twitter history – we know if properly spaced (about two minutes apart) Twitter allows us 20 tweets maximum in the one hour program time without being timed out by Twitter (known as Twitter jail) or even suspended.  As part of our total tweet count, we will include tweets of things that are meaningful to us: 

 Tweet examples:

A Message From The Bridge by Daffy’s late mom Ingrid  – May it bring comfort to hurting hearts #TheAviators  (picture link)

A Message From The Bridge

For the animals sent OTRB for lack of adoption or home, #TheAviators remember you with great love. (picture link)

Open Heart Pink Sky

Flight Team Leader then calls tributes for those not named and alone and begins mission closing.

Flight Team Leader begins to prompt for all flyers to return to base and land upon completion of their tweets and gather in #TheAviators Lounge.    This begins the time for aviators to unwind and visit.  Pals and guests are also welcome to join us.

We tweet 

Roger, copy that Flight Team Leader – TDW33 returning to base. It’s been our privilege to remember the OTRB during this #TheAviators flight.

Flight Team Leader closes the Tribute Mission Program.

Sample Tribute Tweets – Some of you have graphic applications and skills.  Those that do are always welcome to create for the tribute tweets you are doing.

Our Thoughts Are With You

(#TheAviators :  We use our own brother Captain Buddy at the Rainbow Bridge for many of our examples because Buddy as a willing helper to us will not hurt the heart of someone who may still be grieving their own pet.)
