Aviation history on view at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport

The new terminal at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport (formerly Wichita Mid-Continent Airport) opened “way back” in June, 2015.

But the aviation-themed architectural features in the building and the information panels highlighting Witchita’s rich aviation history still seem shiny new.

In fact, the terminal looks more like a museum than an airport.

I’m putting a visit on my 2019 “go there” list right now. I’m looking forward to learning more about the airport’s history (the first terminal is now an aviation museum) and about Witchita’s aviation history, which reaches back long before 1928, when Clyde Cessna created the Cessna Aircraft Co. and Wichita begans promoting itself as “The Air Capital of the World.”

Here are some photos the airport’s team recently sent to StuckatTheAirport.com.
