A piece of Cobb County history flew into the Cobb County International Airport on Monday morning.  A Lockheed JetStar came home for the final time. Donated by an anonymous donor, this historic aircraft will soon reside at the Aviation History and Technology Center (AHTC), formerly known as the Aviation Wing of Marietta, near Dobbins ARB.

More than 200 JetStars were built in Marietta.  They are considered the first corporate jet and served Presidents from Kennedy to Reagan.

Check out the jet’s arrival!
