Birthday Present for Veteran

Posted: Updated:
Coolbaugh Township. PA -

A World War 2 veteran got a very special gift for his birthday  this week.
90 year old Thomas McCaffrey's son set up a flying lesson at the Pocono Mountains Airport on Tuesday. McCaffrey is no stranger to the air. The decorated veteran flew 38 missions in the central pacific. After a half hour flying lesson, the plane landed safely and McCaffrey, who says he was a little nervous at first, was all smiles by the end. He says next time maybe he'll try his hand at learning to fly the plane himself.
