BILLINGS -

The Big Sky Honor Flight has set the dates for its spring trips to Washington, D.C.

The program has made seven flights so far, taking World War Two veterans to the nation's capital to see the memorial built in their honor, as well as other landmarks in the area.

BSHF Vice President Bill Kennedy says flights are scheduled for April 27-28 and May 11-12. Kennedy says the April trip is fully funded, but about $75,000 is still needed for the May flight. Each flight costs around $155,000.

Kennedy says about 140 veterans are signed up for the two spring flights.
