Auction of Mid-Continent Terminal Items Brings in $83K

KSAL StaffAugust 26, 2015

Wichita officials say an auction of items from the city’s old Mid-Continent Airport terminal is expected to net about $83,000.

The Wichita Eagle reports people bid on everything from bathroom signs to the lobby bar during the auction Tuesday. Sets of the airport’s Herman Miller seats went for as much as nearly $3,000 for a large lot to $1,100 for a smaller lot.

The Kansas Aviation Museum spent about $130 for the shelving and racks that were in the airport gift shop. The museum also bought a sign that reads, “Welcome to Wichita, air capital of the world.”

The money from the auction will go into the airport’s general budget for next year.

Crews are expected to start demolition work on the concourses at the old terminal in September.
