WHILE MANY ATTRACTIONS OPENED THEIR DOORS THIS PAST SUMMER AFTER A YEAR OF PANDEMIC, NOT EVERYTHING HAS RETURNED TO NORMAL.

LARRY FINLEY, DIRECTOR OF THE MIDAMERICA MUSEUM OF AVIATION AND TRANSPORTATION NEAR SIOUX GATEWAY AIRPORT, SAYS THEY OPERATED ON LIMITED HOURS THIS SUMMER, BECAUSE THERE WERE NO TOUR GROUPS COMING:

NOTOUR1 OC…….WITH THE GROUP TOURS. :19

FINLEY SAYS THAT’S A BIG REASON WHY THEY HAVE BEEN OPEN JUST TWO DAYS A WEEK:

NOTOUR2 OC………. AT THE MUSEUM. :17

EVEN ON WEEKENDS, FINLEY HAS SEEN NO TOUR BUSES:

NOTOUR3 OC……….ALMOST A YEAR. :27

FINLEY SAYS COVID CONTINUES TO TAKE A TOLL ON THE TOURIST INDUSTRY.

HE SAYS THE AIR MUSEUM WILL BE OPEN THE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AFTER THANKSGIVING AND HOPES PEOPLE WILL START TO COME VISIT

THE AIR MUSEUM IS CURRENTLY OPEN 10AM UNTIL 4PM ON FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS.
