Before you fly away
This statue of three (real!) jets bursting into the sky is an iconic Owatonna landmark. It can be viewed briefly from the interstate, but its worth driving onto the frontage road to pull over and get a great shot. Located in front of the Owatonna Degner Regional Airport, southbound on I-35 Frontage Road.
