Myrtle Beach's "air force" is getting a new paint job

Warbird Park will be closed to vehicles beginning Monday, March 4, while a crew repaints all three of the planes: the F-100 Super Sabre, A-7D Corsair and the A-10 Warthog. The park will have limited access for nearly a month.

The planes at Warbird Park are on permanent loan to the city from the US Air Force and must be maintained to Air Force appearance standards. The painting contract was awarded to Stalvey Construction for $85,000. This project is funded by the Capital Improvement Plan.
