VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) -- A new park named in honor of former
president George W. Bush has been opened at Moody Air Force Base in south Georgia.

The Valdosta Daily Times reports that a large crowd turned out
for the recent dedication of the George W. Bush Air Park at Moody
Field.

The park highlights the heritage of the legendary Flying Tigers,
using five Flying Tiger aircraft displays.

Officials say there are also plans to add an F-86 fighter jet
and other military aircraft to the park.

The park was named in honor of Bush for his support of the Air
Force and the nation. Bush began flight training at Moody Air Force
Base from November 1968 to November 1969.
