Larry McDonald Posing in the 4th Of July Parade

This is Congressman Larry McDonald (1935-1983) in an Independence Day Parade on the 4th of July about 1980.  I was using my 35mm Minolta with a barrel 200mm zoom lens.  Larry stopped the parade and posed so I could get some good shots.  I suppose with that shotgun looking lens he might have thought I was the press.
As we know the Korean Airlines  plane he was flying in September 1, 1983, was shot down by Soviet Interceptors for violating air space. 

I just noticed that the flight number was 007.  As in Bond, James Bond.  Ironic isn't it?
