My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

The P-38 Fighter Jets have Moved

Jets1

I drove past Owatonna this weekend and I nearly freaked out when I didn't see the jets where they belonged. The jets were gone and the place had been turned into an RV lot. Luckily, the jets had been moved only about a half mile south to the Owatonna airport. They are still visible from the highway and are on the same frontage road that runs past Cabela's and the former location of the jets.

You mean "T-38".

The P-38 was a prop-driven, twin-fuselage fighter in World War II.

Apparently I do. I saw these listed as P-38s in a book. A book! So I didn't think to research it further. Thanks for the links.
