(Victorville) – On Dec. 7 at 11 a.m., Victorville’s Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA) will unveil an F-4 Phantom Fighter Jet that has been restored by SCLA employees and a group of volunteers, many of whom are Air Force retirees. The jet was left behind following the closure of George Air Force Base and has been on loan to SCLA by the Air Force for approximately 20 years. The restoration took approximately two years to complete.
Along with seeing the restored F-4, attendees will learn about the history of the jet and the restoration process. Volunteers who restored the jet will be honored during the Ceremony.
The entire community is invited to join in this ceremony that will celebrate the preservation of an important part of Victorville’s rich history. The ceremony was purposefully planned for Dec. 7 as a way for the community to come together on Pearl Harbor Day.
The Ceremony will take place where the F-4C is displayed, outside the SCLA Office located at 18374 Phantom West in Victorville. Parking will be available in the lot adjacent to the SCLA Office. Directional signs will be posted.
