2 volunteers work 8 years to restore ceiling of atrium in Kansas Aviation Museum

Local

It’s mission accomplished at the Kansas Aviation Museum.

After eight years, the ceiling of the atrium has been restored to its original state.

The building was opened in the 1930s.

The ceiling was cleaned up and painted by two volunteers.

“We made a stencil and then we copied the stencil and then we taped it, painted, let it dry, painted it again,” explained Charles Gorges, volunteer. “Take off the tape and then we trim painted it.”

The painter says he’s been a volunteer at the aviation museum for more than 20 years.

He says he will continue for many more years to come.
