The FedEx charter flight is scheduled to depart Anchorage, Alaska at 3:35 AM local time after passing through United States Customs, and is due to arrive at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport at 9:39 AM.

The 450,000 gowns aboard the flight will be be distributed to the areas of greatest need across the state and country. The VA will reimburse the State of New Hampshire for the gowns delivered.
