A World War II veteran died Sunday on his flight home to California following a weekend Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C.

Frank Manchel, 95, was aboard the chartered American Airlines jet on Sunday when he collapsed and died about an hour before the plane landed in San Diego. Several people on the flight attempted to resuscitate the 95-year-old before pronouncing him dead, FOX5 San Diego reported.

"The fella who caught my dad came up to me and said, 'Listen, your dad, within 5 seconds of having him in my arms was gone,'” Manchel’s son, Bruce Manchel, told the news station.


I'm glad he got to see the memorial in DC for them.

At least he had a good weekend. RIP

The last line of the article is a little bizarre. "Six other deaths have happened on Honor Flights originating from other cities".

It's almost like they all held on long enough to see the tribute and then just let go on the way home.
