TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- High flying high school students are getting a one of a kind education after their new classroom landed in Tulsa Tuesday.

Tulsa Public Schools bought a 1964 Cessna for students in McLain High School's aerospace and aviation programs.

"It allows the kids hands on experience," said Thomas Roark, McLain High School. "They'll get to learn how the engine operates, how the aircraft operates, how it's built and what it takes to repair the aircraft."

Students will take the plane apart and put it back together.
