A memorial to the people who died in the crash is on the site, and will remain after the demolition, if the commission gives final approval. A three-member committee has already recommended accepting a $239,000 proposal from a demolition company.

Pulaski Technical College has a training facility on the parcel, and that also would remain.

The theater was also the site when then-President Bill Clinton addressed about 100 recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military decoration, during a convention in 1997.

Carter said the vintage airplanes that were in the museum portion of the 60,000-square-foot building had been removed before the airport took possession of the property.
