WDTN / NBC News Channel
A FedEx jet setting a new flight pattern to the "classroom."
A Boeing 727 is retiring after Thursday's last flight into the Dayton Airport.
The plane is being donated to the Beavercreek City School District. It will be renovated into a classroom.
The idea is to use the jet as a place to teach students about science, technology engineering and math. The school system is partnering with wright state university. The Wright Brothers built their first airplane in Dayton so there is a lot of interest in aviation in the area.
FedEx has retired all of its 727's. Many have been donated to aviation museums, but this is the first that's being turned into an actual school classroom.
