737 fuselage donated for training

MOBILE, Ala. – While much of the attention in this city has been on the Airbus jetliners that will eventually be built here, it was a Boeing 737 that took center stage for a time Monday. A 300-foot long fuselage of a retired 737 was hauled from Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley to the Mobile Fire-Rescue Training Center. The fuselage was donated by CAVU Aerospace, which specializes in breaking down aircraft, to be used as a classroom for specialized training in aircraft rescue and fire fighting, medial and mass casualty situations.
