Top Gun! Willmar gets its own F-14 fighter
WILLMAR -- The retired Navy F-14 Tomcat jet fighter -- parked for more than five years at a reserve military base at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport -- has "landed'' at Willmar Municipal Airport.
The fuselage was loaded Tuesday morning onto a specially designed trailer and transported by truckers Bryan and Patty Peirsol of Virginia Beach, Va., over a circuitous route early Wednesday morning.
