Improvements planned for Kansas Aviation Museum

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The city of Wichita will help finance a $1.8 million project at the Kansas Aviation Museum to upgrade the aging building.

Museum officials said in a news release Tuesday that the city will contribute $900,000 for the work, with the museum pay the rest.
