Owner: Wright Flyer Taken Down at Airport For Ad Space
DAYTON -- Nick Engler is never short of amazed when it comes to the Wright Brothers. He's the director of the Wright Brothers Aeroplane Company.
"Pretty ingenious those guys, this counter-rotation, so the airplane wouldn't pull to one side or the other," said Engler as he enthusiastically describes the replica Wright Flyer 1 that he and his team are working on.
It needs a good scrubbing and it is layered in dust because it has hung in the Dayton International Airport's lobby for 10 years.
"Dayton needed to show off its heritage. The idea is for the 4 million visitors who come through the airport and pass underneath it would be telling them we've been in the airplane business for 110 years," said Engler.
Etched in its structure are the names of more than 300 kids who helped build it. Two weeks ago, Nick says he was asked to take it down.
"It requires a lot of maintenance and the atrium in the airport isn't all that big and they need it for advertising space," Engler said.
On Monday we spoke with an airport representative who said the way it was hung was deemed unsafe. It was suspended similarly to the same plane that hangs at the Smithsonian, and that's been hanging for more than 50 years.
"How can we not be disappointed?" asked Engler when talking about have it to take it down.
Airport representatives responded to an email denying it was taken down for advertising, and they're still considering its place. Engler was told an unmanned aerial vehicle will go up in the atrium instead, but he hopes they will reconsider.
"You really can't know where you're going unless you know where you've been. It would have been nice to have both there and once again emphasize Dayton's been in the aviation business as long as there's been an aviation business."
Airport reps say they will be meeting with Engler and his team soon to discuss the future of the Flyer.
