During its Nov. 9 meeting, Kershaw County Council recognized Boy Scout Elias Altieri for his Eagle Scout project in restoring a McDonnel F-4 display plane at Woodward Field. The F-4 was used as a training aircraft from Nov. 1964 to Dec. 1988, when it was retired to museum status. In reading the proclamation, Burns noted that professional quotes back, they were for between $12,000 and $16,000, but that Elias was able to do the job for under $4,000.
