Beginning Monday morning, don’t be too surprised to see parts of a Boeing 737 Jet fuselage traveling in the area of Broad Street in Mobile.

Parts of the big plane will be used by the Mobile-Fire Rescue Training Academy for special training at their facilities on Owens Street in Mobile.

Specialized training for Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting will supplement existing training curriculum, according to Steve Huffman, Public Information Officer with the Mobile Fire and Rescue Department.

“The ultimate goal is to develop and establish an FAA approved training site in Mobile,” said Huffman in a press release to Fox10News.  “The facility would be the only one of its kind in the state of Alabama,” Huffman said.

The aircraft was donated by CAVU Aerospace.  The acquisition of the fuselage was made through efforts by the Mobile Airport Authority and the Mobile-Fire Rescue Department.
