Remains of Vietnam War Pilot Flown Home by Son
The remains of an Air Force pilot whose plane was shot down in 1967 during the Vietnam War have been returned to Texas on a commercial jet flown by his son.
The flag-draped casket containing the remains of 36-year-old Colonel Roy Knight Jr. of Millsap, Texas, arrived at Dallas Love Field, Thursday, August 8, on a Southwest Airlines flight flown by Captain Bryan Knight.
The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency says Roy Knight, whose remains were accounted for in June, will be buried Saturday in Weatherford, 80 kilometers west of Dallas. (AP)
