Donation of Plane Commemorated with Dedication Ceremony

LAKELAND, FL – (April 12, 2013) – Sun 'n Fun commemorated FedEx's recent donation of a Boeing 727 with a dedication ceremony during the Fly-In.

The cargo plane originally arrived amidst great fanfare at the Lakeland Linder airport in January of this year, but FedEx officials received an extra dose of gratitude from the Central Florida Aerospace Academy and Polk State College via a dedication ceremony.

Tina Rodgers, a member of the Corporate Communications Division of FedEx who oversees FedEx Airshow Programming, avers, "As part of the aviation community, we are donating this aircraft to benefit future Aviators."

"FedEx is one of the few cargo carriers that has an airshow program and participates in airshow worldwide," she further elaborated.

As part of the dedication ceremony, Sun-n-Fun attendees were welcomed aboard for tours of the plane, which will eventually be transformed into classroom space.
