WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Kansas Honor Flight is planning six more flights for veterans this year.

The Hutchinson-based nonprofit group flies veterans for free to visit memorials in Washington D.C.

The first two flights are scheduled for April 16-18 and April 30-May 2.
Mike VanCampen, president of Kansas Honor Flight, says dates for the other four flights haven't been scheduled. He says when the group flew veterans to Washington D.C. last July, the temperature was 108, so the group doesn't plan any trips in July and August this year.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1l3RiLx ) most of the veterans on the first two flights are expected to be from World War II but later flights are expected to include mostly Korean War veterans.
