FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – It’s not your average chore when workers at Wright State University will clean its 1903 Wright B Flyer replica.

The Flyer is being lowered from the rafters at the Dunbar Library on campus Monday and will stay lowered through the end of the week for a thorough cleaning.

The full-sized replica plane has been hanging in the library since 2001.
