Senate delegation leader Inouye met with air crew supporting the DOD aircraft
Senator Inouye, a World War II veteran and a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, is a wounded war hero who at the age of 86, walked through the DOD corral and praised the men and women who represented the aircraft on display.
After touring the corral, the delegates dined with members of the crews who flew the aircraft to the Le Bourget airport for the show, journeys that took days for some and just hours for others.
