Ohio: Middletown may have part in Columbus Zoo exhibit


Middletown may have a part in an African exhibit at the Columbus Zoo.

City Manager Judy Gilleland told City Council in an email last month that Jack Hanna, director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo, and his staff are looking for an airplane. The city’s plane, which is a Beechcraft 18 without an engine and “is just sitting around rusting,” has been offered to Hanna for $5,000, Gilleland wrote to council.

Gilleland said Friday they are still waiting to hear back from Hanna, but she said “we believe they are interested.”

During Hanna’s search for this type of plane, someone mentioned to his staff that Middletown had one, said Denise Hamet, Middletown Economic Development director.
