This year's 2014 Veteran's Day Parade in Quincy will be held on Saturday, November 8. The Veteran's Parade Committee, led by Chairman Dick McKinney, works all year long on organizing this wonderful event. One of the toughest things to secure for an event like this is a "flyover" of a military aircraft.
With the expected weather, Cape Air and Quincy Regional Airport began notifying passengers last night that the last three flights today (Tuesday, February 4) would be preemptively cancelled, according to Jarred Hester, the Quincy Regional Airport Manager.
At 11:33 a.m. representatives from Great River Aviation received a call from the Kansas City Flight Center notifying them that a medical life flight was being rerouted to Quincy Regional because of engine problems.
