Jill Briley of a biplane air tour firm said she almost cried Tuesday when she got to sit in the cockpit of the Samartian’s Purse DC-8 plane that touched down at Lihue Airport following a 10-hour, nonstop flight (Kaitlyn Lahm, the Samaritan’s Purse media coordinator, said she got a good sleep out of the trip) from North Carolina.
