— A local military base helped train some South Korean troops.

A group of pilots from South Korea's Air Force spent the last six months at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. They are learning to fly new F-15s the country recently purchased.

The pilots spent six months learning English before coming to Seymour. Thursday was their last training flight at the base.

The group also got to travel throughout North Carolina, including a trip to the Wright Brothers' monument in Kitty Hawk.
