Return Weir Cook to airport title?

June 3, 2008
Weir Cook has been dead a long time, since 1943, but a military veterans group wants to bring his name back to what is now Indianapolis International Airport.

The war heroâ??s name was on the airport from 1944, a year after he died in a plane crash, until the airport was given its current name in 1976.

Yesterday, the Indianapolis City-County Council voted to recommend that the airport board add â??Col. Harvey Weir Cookâ?? to the official name.
