Honor Flight preparations underway

VANDERBURGH CO., IN (WFIE) -

It takes a lot of people to prepare for the annual Honor Flight of Southern Indiana trip to D.C. every year.

And a few of them are in charge of something we might not think of: wheelchairs.

We're told every Veteran on that trip gets one, to use to move around or as a bench.

Recently, another special feature was added to their fleet of wheelchairs: magnets to hold the wheelchair legs in place so they don't swing around & bang into a veterans legs.

The next Honor Flight takes off from the Evansville Regional airport on October 22nd!
