A 1951 Cougar F9F-6 has been restored by Randy Schave and Dan Flath, painters with Northwoods Aircraft Painting/Park Rapids Aviation. The plane had been mounted on a post at the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport, Schave said. "This is probably one of the best planes we've worked on. It will be very impressive looking."
