National flight tour stops in Branson

Posted online
A national airplane tour meant to encourage others stopped in Branson Thursday, a day later than originally planned.

Michael Combs started his journey, dubbed the Flight for the Human Spirit, after nearly losing his life to a serious illness in 2003. According to a news release, he hopes the journey encourages others to not give up on their dreams.

Combs and his wife, Michele, landed their Remos Light Sport Aircraft at Branson Airport Thursday afternoon, one day behind schedule due to bad weather.

After starting April 8 in Salina, Kan., they are visiting all 50 states in 40 flight days, covering more than 19,000 miles. The flight, according to the release, is the first of its kind to be attempted in a light aircraft.

After touring the airport, the Combses were prepared to leave, but were grounded due to weather in Arkansas. Hilton Hotels in Branson provided lodging for the night before the couple left this morning.

More information about the flight is available at the Combs' Web site.[[In-content Ad]]
