Marcos' Body Finally Begins Flight Home

HONOLULU — The body of former Philippine president Ferdinand E. Marcos was flown out of Hawaii on Sunday, headed for entombment in his home province nearly four years after his death in exile.

Marcos' casket was loaded aboard a Continental Airlines flight for the first leg of the journey to Guam, where it was to be transferred to another plane for the final flight to Ilocos Norte.

The departure followed a two-day wake in a Honolulu high school auditorium in which several thousand Filipinos paid their last respects to a man who has been reviled by his enemies as a cruel dictator and hailed by his admirers as a national hero.
