SITKA, Alaska (AP) -- Federal aviation authorities have signed off on a plan to let a World War II-era plane to take part in a celebration in Sitka.
The only problem is, the event was held two months ago.
The Daily Sitka Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/saGBeb) officials got word Tuesday that the Federal Aviation Administration approved a permit to let a twin-engine amphibian aircraft to fly from Washington state for the Alaska Day celebration.
The five-day celebration concluded Oct. 18.
The permit allowing the plane to fly for air shows and other events is good through Dec. 13, 2013 but the director of the Sitka Historical Society says they don't have any plans in the works for an event.
