Plan to meet them when they return on Friday
A number of area veterans left Wichita’s Eisenhower National Airport early Wednesday morning on Kansas Honor Flight #65 bound for Washington, D.C.
During the course of their trip, they will visit many memorials and other sites as a group, taken to and from their hotel by charter bus. Visits to various sites are somewhat tentative due to weather and other conditions. Some of the sites visited may include: WWII Memorial, U.S. Navy Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, and Arlington National Cemetery.
The “Heroes” will be welcomed home when Southwest Airlines Flight #1610 arrives in Wichita at 11:55 a.m. on Friday. Everyone is invited to be at the airport for their arrival.
