Just over 100 military veterans are back in Oklahoma after a one day flight to Washington, D.C. Tuesday.

Dozens of family and friends were on hand as the veterans arrived back at Tulsa International Airport just before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The flight was part of the Honor Flights program. The trip was funded by a national non-profit organization that is dedicated to flying veterans free of charge to visit the World War II Memorial and Arlington Cemetery in DC.

Over a third of those who went on Tuesday's flight were over the age of 90.
