Damaged Spy Plane Arrives at U.S. Base

From Times Wire Reports

The U.S. spy plane that was at the center of a diplomatic standoff between the United States and China arrived at a Georgia air base, where it will be inspected to see if it can be fixed and returned to service.

A Russian cargo plane carrying parts of the $80-million EP-3, which had been held in China since April 1, touched down at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta.

Rob Koon, a spokesman for Naval Air Systems Command, said a final decision on the plane's status will be made after an inspection.
