Pilot Herb Johansen of Bennington, Neb., unloads supplies he volunteered to fly into the Fremont, Neb., airport, Monday, March 18, 2019. Walled off by massive flooding, Fremont is getting a big lift from private pilots who are offering free flights to shuttle stranded residents to and from their hometown. Authorities say flooding from the Platte River and other waterways is so bad that just one highway lane into Fremont remains uncovered, and access to that road is severely restricted. Airport officials estimate that more than 500 people have caught flights on small aircraft flown by volunteers. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik)
