LOS ANGELES (AP) — Supporters of the Flight Path museum at Los Angeles International Airport are not happy with plans under consideration to move the popular learning center to a site off the LAX complex.
The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that a possible new location for the museum would be the site of the aviation-themed Proud Bird restaurant on Aviation Boulevard.
Airport officials are seeking proposals for development of the Proud Bird property. If the winning bidder includes moving the museum in its plans, the winner would be eligible to extend an 11-year lease by an additional 10 years.
Museum officials say that the Proud Bird property is unsuitable and that they were never consulted by airport officials about moving.
Flight Path includes an aviation museum, aerospace library and education center.©2014 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
