Volunteers from both the local community and the Flight Deck Veterans Group met in Edwardsville Township Park on June 10th to wash and clear out debris from the airplane.
Below you can find images and videos from the May 15, 2017 lowering of the A-7E Corsair II at Robert C. Stille Edwardsville Township Park. This action was the first step in restoring the airplane to its display ready condition.
Why does the plane need restored?
These pictures show the corrosion, the chipped paint, and the faded markings on the U.S. Navy A-7E Corsair II. We would like to bring the plane back to the condition in which it should be kept to honor the men and women in our community who served and continue to serve our Nation. The pictures below were taken Monday May 23, 2016.
