The Nebraska Female Veterans Flight is for women who served in the European or Pacific theaters during World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War or in Afghanistan or Iraq. The tentative date for the flight is Sept. 24. Plans call for 135 veterans to fly on one charter aircraft from Omaha to a Washington airport. Everyone aboard will be female, including pilots, flight attendants, volunteer assistants and news reporters and photographers. Most participants on this Honor Flight will be veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. An application for the flight and more information will be available on the Patriotic Productions website, or contact Bill Williams at 402-612-0210.
