It’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! No, it’s…an eye hospital?
Actually, it’s an eye hospital inside an airplane. And it’s coming to Fort Worth this weekend.
The MD-10 aircraft, known as the “Flying Eye Hospital,” will be at the Cornerstone Air Center at Meacham International Airport, 4001 North Main Street, on Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. The plane is making stops around the U.S. before heading off to Shenyang, China, for its first eye care program.
The plane will be open for public tours. Some features inside the plane include a laser treatment room, operating room and 46-seat classroom.
Orbis, a nonprofit eye care organization, developed the plane. The plane first appeared at the Los Angeles National Airport in June and will also stop by New York, Washington, D.C., Memphis and Sacramento before leaving for China in September. The Alcon Foundation helped bring the plane here.
