 OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ A jet carrying 135 Nebraska veterans of the Korean War landed near the nation's capital Tuesday morning for their daylong tour. 

Bill Williams, of Patriotic Productions in Omaha, said Tuesday morning that his group was ahead of schedule. The old soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen will visit the World War II, Korea and Vietnam memorials and other sights in the Washington, D.C., area. 

Williams says they're scheduled to return to Omaha's Eppley Airfield by 11 p.m. Tuesday.  A similar flight carrying western Iowa veterans of the Korean War is scheduled to take off from Eppley on Wednesday morning.
