SD Honor Flight 11 Takes To The Air

SD Honor Flight 11 Takes To The Air
SIOUX FALLS, SD - It began with the goal of four flights. Now South Dakota Honor Flight #11 is taking off from Sioux Falls. It's the first of two encore flights scheduled for this spring.

This time, more than 100 World War II veterans are flying to Washington, DC Friday morning to see the memorial built in their honor. It all began with a Departure Ceremony at 5:45 a.m. Click on the video player to the right to watch it.

Governor Dennis Daugaard and South Dakota Senator John Thune spoke to the veterans and their guardians before they left and members of the Brandon Valley Band played the National Anthem and 'God Bless America' for the sendoff.

Once the group arrives in the nation's capital, they'll make several stops including a visit to the Air Force Memorial, Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, US Capitol, White House, and, of course, the WWII Memorial.

They'll return Saturday evening.

KELOLAND's Kelly Bartnick is traveling with the veterans and will bring back their stories and experiences to share with you next week.

The next South Dakota Honor Flight is scheduled to take off June 3, 2011.
