Fed Ex Donates Plane To Lubbock Fire Academy

It's made more than $39,000 landings and logged more than 53,000 flight hours and now a Boeing 737 will retire to Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport for training.

"Every little boy at some time in his life has wished for an airplane under the Christmas tree. I don't know if any of us would've dreamt this big. It's pretty close to Christmas..this is a big deal," said Lubbock Fire Marshal Garett Nelson.

The Fed-Ex plane made its final landing in Lubbock Monday. Fed-Ex donated the plane to the Lubbock Fire Department. The Department will use the plane in its fire training academy.

"This aircraft will give not only our firefighters, but fire fighters across the state and region that come to train with us, the ability to get hands on experience with an aircraft," said Lubbock Fire Chief Steve Hailey.

Fire Chief Hailey says the plane will not be set on fire like the other plane used for training. This one will be for aircraft rescue training and certifications.
