Honor Flight Receives Big Donation

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Big Sky Honor Flight's next flight in April is another step closer to being fully funded.

Trivent Financial for Lutherans presented a $6,000 check to Honor Flight, as crowds gathered on the Rocky Mountain College campus Thursday evening.

"What we're looking at is probably a little over a hundred thousand to fund that next flight. We anticipate two more flights or unless we do a larger plane, it all depends," says BSHF Committee President, Bill Kennedy.

With the new donation, just over $50,000 has been raised for April's Honor Flight. As of now, there are 105 World War II veterans signed up for that flight.
