Ohio air base recalls workers; museum stays closed

DAYTON, Ohio  — A southwest Ohio base has recalled nearly all of its 8,700 furloughed civilian workers but will again close the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force because of the partial shutdown of the federal government.

A commander at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton says the base has a budget for paying employees but not for maintenance, training and other expenses.

A spokeswoman for the Air Force museum says it wasn’t among the operations that would be supported without further funding. The Dayton Daily News reports the museum reopened Monday as the workers returned, but it will close again today and remain closed until more funding is worked out.

The museum draws more than a million visitors annually as a top attraction in the region.
