LENA, ILLINOIS — Day one and two of disassembling the F-4 Phantom Jet has begun, and according to the Northwest Illinois F-4 Jet Memorial Project folks, they’ll have ten days to take the plane apart and then three to four days travel time to bring the jet home.
The city of Lena and all of Northwest Illinois will soon be the home of a retired F-4 Phantom II Fighter Jet. What started out as a conversation between friends, has turned into an effort to place an F-4 Phantom directly across the street from the American Legion Hall on Main Street in Lena. Below is an update of the progress.
