SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont National Guard says repairs have been completed on three F-16 fighter jets damaged in a storm earlier this month and two others should be ready to fly by the end of the day.

But it’s unclear when the repairs will be completed to the sixth jet that was damaged when a hanger door collapsed during a July 8 storm.

Guard spokesman Major Chris Gookin says there’s no estimated completion date for the sixth plane due to the extent of the damage and the availability of repair parts.

The aircraft were damaged when the hanger door collapsed inward, hitting some of the planes parked inside.
