A plane carrying Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has left Tucson, taking the congresswoman to a rehabilitation hospital in Houston.
An ambulance took Giffords to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base on Friday along a route lined with well-wishers holding flags.
It's the first time Giffords left the Tucson hospital since she was brought there with a gunshot wound to the head nearly two weeks ago. Six people died in the attack Jan. 8 outside a grocery store, where Giffords was meeting with constituents.
She's accompanied on the specially outfitted jet by her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, her mother, a doctor and other medical personnel.
