Flight Across America to honor 9/11 victims --   June 7, 2002 - AOPA Online
  This summer volunteer pilots will honor victims of the September 11 tragedy by flying across the  country. Starting on August 11 from Paine Field in Everett, Washington, Flight Across America will  link with other flights and converge in New York City on the one-year anniversary. Fifty state flags will  be delivered to the city. The goal is to have at least one aircraft take off and land from every airport in  the country during the month-long celebration of flight. There will also be fly-in picnics. Flight Across  America was dreamed up by Molly Peebles, who has a newly discovered passion for flight and a  desire to make a difference after September 11.
