Over the past week or so I’ve been hearing from members who have been inspired by the athletes of the Special Olympics and wanted to know more about the Citation Airlift that brought hundreds of athletes from around the nation to the games in Nebraska. I was honored to take part and wanted to share with you some images from this wonderful trip.
One week later we were back in Lincoln to pick up our athletes. Cessna did a tremendous job organizing the Special Olympics Airlift. Thanks to well over 100 Citation aircraft, young athletes for around the country were able to participate. The FAA also did an outstanding job managing the flow of aircraft in and out of Lincoln. The mobile operations center seen here on the right came in from Kansas City.
Again thanks to Cessna for superb organization. It was a privilege for all of us at AOPA to participate is such a meaningful and memorable event.
Finally, congratulations to all the Special Olympians…each and everyone is a true winner!
