Corpus Christi, Texas – No Dasher. No Dancer. Not this time. This time Santa was seen flying into the area on a HALO-Flight helicopter to greet the children from Driscoll Children’s Hospital for their annual Christmas Party aboard the USS Lexington Sunday afternoon.

Members of the Training Squadron 35 out of NAS Corpus Christi participated in the annual Pilot for a Day Event.

Additionally, the Veterans Band of Corpus Christi provided Christmas music to entertain the children as they awaited Santa’s arrival on HALO-Flight #1.
