FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The 122nd fighter wing moved two steps closer to opening a civilian air Park Tuesday.
Two aircraft once flown by the air guard made their way down Ferguson Road to a future site for the park.
The F-84 flown by the unit from 1958 to 1971, and an F-16 flown from 1992 to the present joined the F-100 and the F-4 already mounted in front of the base.
2nd Lt. Rebecca Metzger says, "The goal will be to have all of the aircraft flown at the 122nd Fighter Wing out front for the public to enjoy. At this point we don't have all the aircraft. So it will probably be a little bit difficult to get some of the older aircraft that were flown at the 122nd Fighter Wing. But that will be the goal."
Fulfilling that goal and building a park will come in the future.
Right now, the guard has no budget to build an air park.
