(WDAZ-TV) - Marvin Windows of Warroad recently donated more than $5,000 of airplane parts to Northland Community and Technical College's Aerospace program.

The donated items come from an engine that was part of the Marvin fleet of four aircraft. The parts will be used to help train students in engine maintenance.

They come from a 2003 aircraft that was used to transport people for tours and training at Marvin.

"It saves us money in that we don't have to go out and purchase that equipment and on top of this, our students get equipment that is state of the art. They can get hands-on which is what Northland is all about is hands-on education," NCTC Chief Development Officer Dan Klug said.

Earlier this year, the Detroit Pistons basketball team donated a retired DC-9 aircraft to Northland's Aviation Maintenance Program.
