WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) - Volunteers and staff at a Georgia museum have helped attach wings to the main body of an aircraft flown during the Vietnam War.

News outlets report that the wings of an F-100D Super Sabre were reaffixed to the aircraft on Friday at the Museum of Aviation, near Robins Air Force Base.

The airplane was flown in combat during the Vietnam War by retired Maj. Gen. Rick Goddard, who was on hand to watch as the wings were attached to the fuselage.

The airplane is expected to be displayed in the aviation museum’s Hangar One, home to several Vietnam-era aircraft exhibits.

The Super Sabre was flown extensively during the Vietnam War and was used primarily as a fighter-bomber in ground-support missions such as attacking bridges, road junctions, and troop concentrations.
