Florida airport prepares for second plane of migrants reportedly on way to Delaware

Just days after Gov. DeSantis arranged a flight of 48 Venezuelan migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard, a second plane is reportedly in the works.


Okaloosa County does not receive updates on flights like the one expected to land in Crestview Tuesday, according to county spokeswomen April Sarver. Much of what officials learn, she says, comes from the public, who might be using apps to trace flights coming in from Texas or just passing rumors back and forth on social media. And because there is no air traffic control tower at Bob Sikes Airport, outgoing and incoming air traffic is monitored by Eglin Air Force Base. 

“We get to hear the rumors too, but we wouldn’t get anything official,” Sarver said. I sure would like it if Gov. DeSantis would call and give me a head’s up.”
