WWII Veterans' Honor Flight Returns Tonight


So far, more than 700 veterans from Central Florida, many from World War II, have been treated to a day in Washington D.C. touring the memorials.

The 11th Honor Flight for West Central Florida returns tonight (Tuesday) at 8:30 at the St. Petersburg Clearwater Airport carrying some 80 WWII veterans.

The public is invited to come out and give the honorees a true "hero's welcome home." The celebration is planned at the baggage claim facility.
