OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — Workers have installed a cupola atop the old Naval Air Station Ottumwa administration building.
The Ottumwa Courier reports (http://bit.ly/16USYNl ) workers used a crane Saturday to lift and swing the cupola onto the building.
It's unclear when the cupola was removed from the building, which dates to World War II when pilots were trained at the site.
Stephen Black, who is working with other volunteers to restore the building, speculates it came down after a 1962 storm that destroyed a hanger.
Volunteers built the cupola based off original plans as part of the restoration effort. They have cleaned out the building and have a number of other projects planned, including restoring a second floor office used by President Richard Nixon when he was stationed in Ottumwa as a Navy lieutenant.
