Aviation Museum Seeking New Director

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Aviation Museum in Wichita again needs a new director.

Richard Moore, president of the museum’s board of directors say that Daniel Bateman, who started in May 29, has left the museum. Bateman’s last paid day was Friday.

Bateman said Tuesday he’s pursuing job leads, but also says he’s more concerned with his family and medical issues his mother is having in Colorado.

Bateman replaced Lon Smith, who announced his resignation in March. Smith had been the museum’s director for seven years and is now president of the Wichita Independent Business Association.

A search committee is being formed and a national search will begin for the museum’s new director.
