Honor Flight Return Trip Delayed

The return of the U.P. Honor Flight to Escanaba tonight has been delayed.

Staff at the Delta County Airport say Sun Country Airlines flight 8604 was scheduled to land in Escanaba at 9:30 Eastern time.

But thunderstorms in the Washington, DC area prevented it from departing Dulles Airport on time.

It’s now scheduled to return to Escanaba at 11:39 pm.

The Honor Flight brings U.P. veterans to the nation’s capitol for an expenses–paid trip to the National World War II Memorial.
