Dayton History plans ‘substantial’ Aviation Center changes


Dayton History is getting ready to make an announcement about the John W. Berry, Sr. Wright Brothers Aviation Center.

A press conference is planned for 10 a.m. Friday at Carillon Historical Park, in which the organization promises “a game-changing announcement” on a “completely re-imagined John W. Berry, Sr. Wright Brothers Aviation Center.”

The center is said to have more Wright artifacts on display than any other collection, including the 1905 Wright Flyer III, which has been the only airplane designated a National Historic Landmark.

Brady Kress, Dayton History president and chief executive, and U.S. Rep. Michael Turner, with members of the Wright family, will be on hand for the announcement, which the non-profit Dayton History organization said will involve the debut of several Wright family artifacts as well as “very substantial changes” for Carillon Historical Park.
