WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Plans call for razing a building at the Wichita airport that was damaged when a small plane crashed into the building last year.

A twin-turboprop airplane struck the FlightSafety International building at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport on Oct. 30, 2014, killing the pilot and three people inside. Federal officials say the cause of the crash hasn’t been determined yet.

FlightSafety told The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1Ocwz9d ) in an email Thursday that the damaged building will be razed, and the land will be returned to the city. The company says the process will begin soon and “completed as soon as possible.”

FlightSafety’s decision to raze the building comes about six months after Sedgwick County rejected a request to match the city in providing financial aid to help FlightSafety rebuild at the airport.
