Move of airplane to tie up traffic near Owens

Traffic delays are likely on State Rt. 795, Oregon Road, and other connecting streets in Lake and Perrysburg townships tomorrow morning while an airplane is moved from Metcalf Field to Owens Community College, the Ohio Department of Transportation announced.

A Boeing 727-100 that FedEx donated to the Owens Center for Emergency Preparedness in April will be towed from the airport to the campus, where it will be used as a training site for on-board aviation emergency responses, such as to medical emergencies, hijackings, and bomb threats.

The move is scheduled to be made between 8 a.m. and noon, weather permitting.
