Old Mid-Continent Airport terminal auction yields $83,000

August 26, 2015

— An auction of items from the old Mid-Continent Airport terminal has brought in about $83,000 for the Wichita Airport Authority.

The Wichita Eagle reports people who bought items at the auction arrived Tuesday to pick up their purchases, which they had to remove from where they were in the terminal.

Those who bought items included aviation enthusiasts and the Kansas Aviation Museum. Daniel Bateman, the museum's executive director, said they spent about $130 on the shelving and racks that were in the terminal's gift shop so the museum could expand its own gift shop.

Assistant director of airports Brad Christopher said the money made from the auction will go into the airport's general budget for next year. Demolition of the concourses at the old terminal is expected to begin next month.
