Tennessee man has special Memorial Day delivery

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many people were flying or driving on Memorial Day, but one guy was driving with a plane. We ran into Dean Baxter in Albany.

He's hauling a plane from middle Tennessee to Miami this weekend. Baxter is delivering the plane to a friend in St. Maarten who plans to use the parts of that plane with the parts of another plane to make a new one.

"Several of my friends were aware of the plane so I was talking with them and said, 'Memorial Day weekend, I'm taking the plane down to Miami.' Other people overheard it and I think visualized a much more exciting weekend that I was really going to have," said Baxter.

Baxter made several stops all around the Southeast picking up parts for the plane. He is making one more stop in Jacksonville before heading to Miami.
