Dream Flight for Veterans in Waukesha

They were honoring veterans through flight in Waukesha today. 

It was a flight to remember for 16 local veterans.

"Thank you for your service. Just relax and let us do all the work," said Jeff Klosky, a Dream Flight pilot. "It’s a very little thank you to give them a great experience as they’re in their older years."

The Dream Flight organization allows veterans around the country to experience a flight in a classic war aircraft—for free. 

"It creates a magical experience with the wind in your face and able to see everything around you," said Klosky.

"It was a delightful flight. The view was beautiful up there. We flew over Pewaukee Lake and my goodness, the boats were out. It was a great day," said Shulman, a Korean War Veteran.

All were able to bring their families to witness the magic. 

"He got to go up there at 90 years old. It was amazing, I thought they did a great job," said Elizabeth Prince, his daughter.

‘I was older than the airplane!" he said.

A small thank you for a big sacrifice.

"Thanks for the ride. Thanks for your service and thanks for flying with me today."
