Jet Donated To Kansas School District

KSAL StaffJune 8, 2014

A retired FedEx jet has found a new home and purpose as a classroom for Liberal students to learn math and science in southwest Kansas.

The donated Boeing 727, which was built in 1979 and also had a career as a passenger jet, will be called the Liberal Learning Jet.

The jet named “Alina” arrived Thursday at the Mid America Air Museum, a former World War II training base. The aircraft will be converted to a classroom with space for 30 to 60 students. The focus will be on teaching science, technology, engineering and math skills.

The project is collaboration between the city, school district, the Mid America Air Museum and the Seward County Community College and Area Technical School.
