THOMSON, GA (WFXG) -

Northrop Grumman Corporation is donating a Cessna 401 aircraft, N6238Q, to the Aviation Maintenance Technology Program at Augusta Technical College. The appraised value of the Aircraft is $18,260. The Aircraft was delivered today, just after noon, to the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport (HQU).
