Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The next Northland Honor Flight has been announced, and the fundraising efforts are set to kick off next month.

The eighth Honor Flight will fly out the Twin Ports on Saturday, June 6, 2015.

This August, the American Legion Post along Grand Avenue in Duluth will host a fundraiser for the trip. The average Honor Flight costs $90,000.

The day–long journey gives Veterans a chance to visit their memorials in the nation's capital.

Organizers say the purpose for the event is changing as more flights are added.
