WWII Veterans Enjoyed a Ride in an Open Cockpit WWII Plane

November 20, 2016 | Blog


Spring Hills Hunter’s Creek Assisted Living resident Thomas Utsey went back in time when he went for a ride in an open cockpit WWII plane.

Veterans and their families from Spring Hills Hunter’s Creek Assisted Living attended a Veteran’s Day celebration at Kissimmee Gateway Airport. Eight of the veterans took a ride in an open cockpit plane from WWII. The VFW did a 21-gun salute and also performed a pinning ceremony for the Veterans. In addition, the Museum of History provided a display of WWII military artifacts.

Channel 9’s Roy Ramos and FOXTV covered the amazing day!
