WICHITA, KS – JANUARY 10, 2012

The displays inside the Kansas Aviation Museum tell the story of Wichita’s tie to the aircraft industry. This is a painting of an old photograph of a 1927 Cessna AW with airplane workers standing on the wings to display its strength.
The city of Wichita, KS is tied closely to the aircraft industry. Over the past century, Wichita has been the home to most of the large aviation manufacturers. Some people equate Wichita and aviation to Silicon Valley and the computer chip. However, over the past three years Wichita has seen many layoffs in the aircraft sector including the most recent news by Boeing that they will be leaving the city for good after over 8 decades of doing business in the city.
