TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The final Honor Flight of the spring season is headed to Washington D.C. this morning. 

The flight left Tucson International Airport shortly before 6 a.m. For the first time all 25 veterans going will be aged 90 or older.  This final group for the season will also include three women veterans.

"I'm definitely excited about the whole thing," said U.S. Army vet Nell Jane Willian.  "I didn't get to the Women's Memorial when it first started or after it was finished.  I'm just tickled to death to go."

The veterans will spend a couple of days in D.C. seeing the sights, including the WWII Memorial before returning on Friday, June 27.
