Mid America Museum of Aviation & Transportation seeks funding for Flight 232 exhibit
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
It's been almost 25 years since the United Airlines crash of Flight 232.
And, the Mid America Museum of Aviation and Transportation plans to create a permanent reminder in Sioux City of the life changing moment in history.
Those involved with the project presented their plans to the board of supervisors Tuesday and received $10,000 worth of funding to help cover the cost of the exhibit.
"Sioux City and the Siouxland area is stepping forward, like they did back 25-years ago, to help recognize the crew, rescue workers, and the effort that everyone made for that event," Mid America Museum of Aviation & Transportation Executive Director Larry Finley said.
Finley said the city has also committed $10,000 and the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce will be providing financial support for the special events they will be holding at the end of July to remember and honor those lost. For a full look at the anniversary itinerary set for July, click here.
