Wright B. Flyer Removed from Airport, Petition to Get it Back
DAYTON -- A beautiful sight at the Dayton International Airport no longer exists. The Wright B Flyer replica which hung in the lobby has been taken down.
"It's a disappointment not to see it hanging up there right now. There's so many people I would notice who come walking in here. They'd take a glance, look up at the ceiling in awe. You'd see little kids looking at it, too, wondering what that is," said Jarryd Stump, referring to his favorite feature at the Dayton International Airport.
The plane was taken down last week.
"Even though I see it every day it's still a sight to see it hanging up there. It's just a part of history to sit there and think ... that's the first flight that ever flew," said Stump.
A representative for the airport couldn't talk to us on camera but told us over the phone that it had to come down because a recent audit declared it was unstable, plus crews are working on renovating the airport, so the Wright B Flyer isn't a priority.
"I would definitely like to see it made a priority, it's an important part of our history because it's definitely something we don't want to see forgotten here in Dayton, where flying started at with the Wright Brothers here in Dayton," said Stump, who set up a petition on Change.org to bring it back.
While some will question spending the money to safely remount the plane, everyone we asked say it's good exposure for Dayton.
"I think it adds to the airport itself and it's been here for a long time," said Mickey Dillion of Lebanon.
"Hopefully one of these days I'll come back into work and see it hanging back up there," said Stump.
We've heard from a reliable source that it's now back with its original owner, but we've still not heard back from the airport on that.

Obama economists: Rosier picture if budget passed
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's top economists say the nation is on track to make economic progress over the next two years, but say it would do even better if Congress would enact the additional spending he proposed in his most recent budget. A divided Congress in an election year is not likely to heed that call.
