NAS Ottumwa sees cupola's return


The hope is that someday, NAS Ottumwa will be able to install flight simulators, a simpler one for children and a one for adults, to give them a hands-on flight experience.


"Then besides some brick repair, we'll have the outside all buttoned up and we can start on the inside," he said. "It's probably going to have to be gutted due to the four to five years the police used it for SWAT activity. They blew holes in the walls."

Black said gutting the inside is likely due to asbestos and dated infrastructure.

"There are electrical wires in here that were installed in the 40s," Black said. "That's one fast way to burn down a building."
