Flights show film on Sen. Inouye
HONOLULU (AP) — A documentary chronicling the life of late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye is being shown on flights between Japan and his home state of Hawaii.
Japanese tire company Nitto Tire says in a news release that the documentary began showings Oct. 1 during flights operated by All Nippon Airways and Hawaiian Airlines.
A Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman says the film is airing on its Japan-Honolulu flights.
Inouye died in December of respiratory complications. He was 88.
Inouye was a World War II hero who broke racial barriers on Capitol Hill. He ascended to president pro tempore of the Senate, third in the line of presidential succession.
Nitto says the film titled “Journey to Washington” follows Inouye’s path and includes interviews with him. The documentary shares a title with Inouye’s 1967 book.
