“Something incredible is happening,” Jackson Proskow tweeted from Dallas Love Field Thursday.
The Global News reporter witnessed a particularly emotional Southwest Airlines landing as a pilot returned from a trip to Vietnam to recover his veteran father’s remains 52 years after he originally went missing.
Bryan Knight was 5 when he “waved goodbye” to his father, Air Force Col. Roy Abner Knight Jr., who flew out of Dallas Love Field to serve in the Vietnam War. According to Dallas TV station KDFW, Knight was shot down while on a mission in Laos. His body was never recovered because the site where his plane crashed was considered hostile territory, but then discovered earlier this year by a team investigating crash sites.
