Students, their family members and faculty from Minnesota Connections Academy recently took a field trip to Bemidji's AirCorps Aviation, which is dedicated to the restoration, maintenance, and rebuilding of vintage WWII and legacy aircraft, a press release said.

The group got a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into preserving a historical aircraft. Connections Academy is a K-12 online public school that students across the state attend from home, the release said.
