UPDATE: Wright Flyer I Back on Airport's Radar
DAYTON -- For 10 years, the Wright Flyer I replica hung front and center in the Dayton International Airport lobby, but in July, airport representatives asked the model's owner and builder, Nick Engler, to take it down.
Fast-forward four months, and the symbol of Dayton's claim to fame appeared to be replaced by advertising.
So we asked Airport officials to explain what was happening with this replica plane. Over the phone they denied they were just seeking ad revenue, and say there were other safety concerns, like how it was hung, for insurance purposes. They also said it needed some maintenance.
"It will hang there again, thanks, in part, to the coverage of Channel 22 News and FOX 45," Nick Engler said. "I was totally blown away by the number of people who came forward and wanted the airplane back up."
The new way it's hung will allow them to raise and lower it for maintenance and for special displays.
"There's still quite a bit of work that has to be done to the Wright Flyer I, but the plan right now is to have it up at least by April 16, that's Wilbur's birthday. If not much sooner," explains Engler.
Airport reps are going a step further and creating an education center nearby, so people can learn about what they're looking at and understand Orville and Wilbur Wright's legacy of being the first in flight.
DAYTON -- We have some results after a series of stories we have been doing at Dayton International Airport.
The Wright Flyer I replica, that was taken down in July is going back up - front and center - in the main lobby.
The International symbol of Dayton appeared to be replaced by advertising. Airport officials denied they were just seeking ad revenue, and told us the Wrights' first plane would return to its rightful place after it's cleaned.
Finally, after months of delay, Airport reps met with the replica's owner, Nick Engler. He told us they are not just putting back the flyer, they are going to add an interactive education center by next April, just in time for Wilbur Wright's birthday.
