Water salute at RDU

Just wondering if anyone was aboard this flight today around noon ET.
Remains of Staff Sgt Donald Stewart found in Vietnam and returned for proper burial. Was honored as DL flight taxied in at RDU.

Was shot down in 1965, here's story http://wncn.com/2015/11/09/remains-o...aleigh-monday/

Great story. I remember a local news story about the family finding his plane that aired sometime around 2000ish. There's some more video on that twitter feed (in the link) of the procession to Harnett County.
