The first round of Land of Lincoln Honor Flight dates for 2016 have been set. The first of three planned flights to Washington D.C. will take place on April 19th with other dates scheduled for May and June.  Flights in August, September and October are being planned, pending available funding.

Land of Lincoln Honor Flight Volunteer John Dust tells the Big Z they expect to fly veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam to our nation’s capital this year.
