    My father who is 97 and a WWI vet. He was stationed in North Africa, and India he flew 76 missions from India to China over the Burma Hump. My question is are there any special accommodations available at the show for WWII veterans? He would love to see the planes you have on display, but needs some assistance getting around. Your input is appreciated. Thank you.
