First Flight

Sandra and Donald Truax, 62 and 67, wait in the terminal at the Kalamazoo / Battle Creek International Airport on Thursday afternoon, the first day of operation. It’s also a special day for the Portage couple: they had never flown on an airplane before. They are catching a connecting flight in Detroit to go to Hawaii for a cruise.
