Kentucky Park Gets NASA T-38

Kentucky Park Gets NASA T-38

“Did somebody order an airplane?” joked Worldwide Aircraft Recovery Vice President Marty Batura on Saturday afternoon as he drove a NASA Northrop T-38 Talon airplane into Kentucky’s Bowling Green-Warren County Regional Airport, while members of the Aviation Heritage Park snapped pictures of the arrival.

“It’s like a bunch of expectant fathers,” said Bob Pitchford, a board member for the park.

The plane is the fifth acquisition for the park, 1825 Three Springs Road, which aims to promote the stories of prominent aviators from the region. The T-38 was flown by astronaut and U.S. Marine Col. Terry Wilcutt, a Russellville native and Western Kentucky University graduate.
