Nebraska Air National Guard helping restore F-117 Nighthawk

ASHLAND, Neb. -- With the arrival of a new celebrity at the SAC Aerospace Museum, the Nebraska Air National Guard is helping bring it back into shape for showtime.

Members of the 155th Mission Support Group re-attached wings and the tail section of the newly arrived F-117 Nighthawk on Tuesday.

Much of the hardware that accompanied the F-117 from Nevada to Nebraska was labeled via a numbering system.

Members held each wing in place while museum staff and Air Guard maintainers aligned and bolted them to the fuselage.

The aircraft arrived at the museum in March and is expected to be fully restored for public viewing by summer.
