We are happy to announce the delivery of our 1st aircraft (static display) for Phase I. This A-7 Corsair aircraft is on loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida (www.navalaviationmuseum.org). This will be one of four aircraft on display at Cecil Commerce Center to honor the former Naval Air Station Cecil Field, Master Jet Base (1941-1999). We currently have a team led by Sam Houston in Pocahontas, Arkansas preparing the aircraft for its movement. We are expecting delivery on Friday, August 16, time TBD. Please see the photos attached.
The aircraft will be delivered at the Jacksonville JetPort hangar located at: 13365 Simpson Way, Jacksonville, FL 32221 where the aircraft will be temporarily located until the completion of the Phase I construction (expect Fall 2019).
We are partnering with Landstar (www.landstar.com) who is providing the trailers to transport the aircraft. They have been a great partner of ours and a strong supporter of the military. Mike Cashner, VP of Government Services is the lead contact representing the transporting company. Crane & Rigging (www.cranenrigging.com) of Jacksonville will be proving the crane services led by Robert Bishop.
