CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - It's a high flying Friday for some veterans and seniors in Cape Girardeau.
Today, residents from Chateau Girardeau got the chance to fly in an open cockpit airplane.
It's all part of the Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation.
Veterans from World War II and the Korean War took part.
One man is 94-years-old. He got the chance to see big Cape Girardeau landmarks from the sky, like the university, the bridge, and the river.
"It was just a pleasant surprise," said WWII veteran EP Kurra.
"If they have the chance to do this, they should take it," said John Shelton.
"In Korea, we had a lot of helicopters, fighter planes, that kind of stuff it's going to be different," said Korean War Veteran Eugene Beussink.
"Lots of these veterans have not been up in 40 years, 50 years, so they've not seen this plane for that long, so it really brings back memories, so it's just a fantastic, opportunity for them to get up, maybe their last time to get up in the air," said Andy King.
