INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Soon, travelers flying into and out of Indianapolis International Airport will no longer have to wonder how the terminal got its name.
Wednesday, the airport unveiled an early look at what will eventually be a statue of Colonel Harvey Weir Cook.
Cook was a fighter pilot and aviation pioneer who was born and raised in Indiana.
For many years, the entire airport was named for him, before it became “Indianapolis International.”
When the new terminal opened in 2008, it was named in his honor.
The new H. Weir Cook statue will sit in the center entrance of the terminal. Indiana artist Bill Wolfe is the sculptor.
