Final Leatherstocking Honor Flight takes off Saturday

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – We’re now four days away from Veterans Day, a day when we honor the lives of American Armed Forces who have passed away and who are still serving today.

So it was fitting that Saturday was the fifth and final Leatherstocking Honor Flight, which takes Capital Region war veterans to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

The flight left early Saturday morning from Albany Airport just before noon time and landed in Washington, D.C., where veterans could experience their memorials.

They are due back in Albany sometime Saturday night.
