BROOKHAVEM, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - An F-86 Sabre Jet now located in Hazlehurst will be moved to the Military Memorial Museum in Brookhaven, according to local veterans.

Chad Smith, chairman of the Military museum, tells the Brookhaven Board of Aldermen that the group has received permission from the railroad to put the plane near the tracks.

The museum, the American Legion and other veterans will provide maintenance and upkeep on the jet. He says the museum will pay the expenses of the move.

Smith told aldermen that the group will return later to discuss details of the move.
