DELPHOS — Korean War Veteran John Williams was more than surprised recently when he and his son, James Williams, took off for a drive to Toledo and hopped on an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

He and his son — a veteran of the Panama Invasion in 1989 — who served as his father’s guardian during the trip, took off from Grand Aire Hangar, just west of Toledo Express Terminal, where the “send off” party began shortly after a 6 a.m. breakfast.
