HOUSTON (AP) - The Lone Star Flight Museum has unveiled a master plan to build a 130,000-square-foot museum at Houston’s Ellington Airport.

The Houston Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1wBVpVp ) reports that the master plan was unveiled Monday at an event featuring several dignitaries, including Houston Mayor Annise Parker.

The museum has been located in Galveston for 20 years and was renovated after damage from Hurricane Ike. But the new plan includes a spring 2015 groundbreaking on the project that will reopen in 2016 at Ellington.

Museum officials and patrons have already raised $25 million of the $35 million needed for the project. Along with examples of historic aircraft, the new project will include a hands-on interactive learning environment for students, focusing on science, technology, engineering and math.
