Aviation Heritage Park has a new prize to add to its distinguished collection of military planes.
It's a vintage F-9F Panther, just like the one Kentucky aviator Johnny Magda flew when he commanded the Blue Angels in 1950.
Magda was also a World War II and Korean War flying ace.
Park president Dan Cherry says having this plane is an honor, and a symbol to young people.
"The hope is they will see and understand these stories of the past, and that they can become an inspiration to young people of today to hang in there in school, do the best you can do, and don't ever give up on your dreams," Cherry said.
The Blue Angels will fly into Bowling Green June 23, and the Panther will be unveiled June 26, the same day as the park's annual Hangar Party.
