Flights Honoring Veterans

By Britney Gajewski. CREATED Nov 23, 2013

ASHWAUBENON, WI-- Young and old come together to celebrate history.

Jet Air in Ashwaubenon hosted Honoring America's Veterans - Encouraging Tomorrow's Leaders.

The event gives veterans a chance to remember history, and gives kids a hands-on lesson.

People could get up close and personal with one of the four B-17's that are still flying.

"Well, this is an amazing airplane, and to think of what our veterans went through in this airplane in World War II. It's an amazing story," said Alan Timmernan, CEO of Jet Air.

The B-17 will make a special fly-over at the Vikings vs. Packers game on Sunday, November 24th.
