COLUMBIA - The 18th Central Missouri Honor Flight has set a record.
A large crowd gathered at the Courtyard Marriott Tuesday night to welcome home more than 60 veterans and 40 guardians. They arrived around 1:40 a.m.
Along with the crowd, 500 motorcycles from the Central Missouri Honor Flight Riders greeted them and set a world record for their motorcycle escort. There was even a red, white, and blue hot air balloon.
