Once the wings are removed, the plane will be taken to Owens Community College s Center for Emergency Preparedness in Perrysburg Township, where the wings will be reattached and the plane will be used in training exercises simulating problems aboard commercial aircraft. Federal Express donated the plane, above, valued at $450,000, to the college.
