On Saturday, May 14, 2022, a Rocky Mountain Honor Flight, with 30 Veterans, will be returning from Washington, DC via Baltimore, MD to Denver International Airport. The Colorado Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to the Welcome Home Ceremony. A Flag line will be formed where the escalators bring the passengers from the train platform to the Arrival Level at the center of the Main Terminal. The flight is scheduled to arrive at 5:40PM, so, please plan to stage near the escalators by 5:15PM.
An impressive Welcome Home at DIA completes a memorable experience for these Veterans.
Will an available Ride Captain please post.
I will be honored to attend and will bring Flags.
Staging will take place at the Final Approach waiting facility, 7680 North Wenatchee Street, 80249, which is located across the parking lot from the DIA Phillips 66 Gas Station. There are fast food restaurants within this facility and it has the arrival/departure monitors there, as well. Please plan for a 4:45PM briefing with a 5:00PM departure to the East Terminal. These flights are always subject to delay, therefore, it would be wise to check the Southwest Airlines schedule for Flight #3359 before you leave home.
Note: The multi year construction project to renovate the Main Terminal is still underway, therefore, our special parking situation on Level 6 of the East Terminal will not be available. We can car pool from the Final Approach in order to minimize parking garage fees.
