KANSAS HONOR FLIGHT #36 Return Riders, REMINDER: We can park bikes at orange cones between new and old terminal. Please keep in mind we load the shuttle vans there so try to be accommodating. After you park your bike move a orange cone in front/behind your bike so the next rider can park close to your bike. We should be able to get 10-12 bikes in that area. If you feel when you arrive and the area is full make the loop and park in area designated for departures. Thanks for all the cooperation, Kenny
