SPECIAL REPORT: Gift of Flight

Posted: Updated:

We all have times of loss, sadness and even despair.

But most of us are lucky enough and tough enough to make it through that to enjoy the good times.

Even better, when you can take one of those sad moments and find the happy buried deep inside.

Corey Adkins and Michelle Dunaway found a woman who did that.

She was kind enough to share her story and the gift of flight.

If you are interested in bidding on the airplane, bid forms can be found on the web page to the left of the story. The forms will be available at 5:00 November 16th. The auction will run through 12:00 pm on December 28th.
