Honor Flight Forced to Change Plans

The government shutdown is forcing the upcoming Honor Flight trip to change its original plans.

The government shutdown is forcing the upcoming Honor Flight trip to change its original plans.

The flight takes World War II veterans to see the memorials in Washington, D.C.

In the past, the trip has taken off from the 122nd fighter wing, however, due to the shutdown, that’s not an option. 

The ramp that's normally used for Honor Flight isn't in service because of the government shutdown.  

Honor Flight is scheduled to take 70 local WWII veterans to D.C on Oct. 23rd.

 Bob Myer, President of Honor Flight Northeast Indiana, and leaders with the 122nd met today to try and salvage the trip.  

Luckily, they were able to find a solution, and the trip will leave from a hanger at Fort Wayne International Airport.
