Each of the three planes currently on display had platforms placed so visitors could get a close up look at the interior of the jets while the tops were pulled back. The park is a reminder of all the worldwide aviation accomplishments achieved by people right here in our area.
"The very first man to fly over Lookout Mountain came from Scottsville. We have through WWI and WWII, Korea, Vietnam, all the way up to a space shuttle pilot, Terry Wilcutt. With all these stories we had to get the stories out to the public." said Bob Pitchford.
Pitchford says another goal of the park is to inspire young people to pursuer their dreams, especially in aviation.
