A tribute to Octave ChanuteĀ  – in downtown Chanute, Kansas.

It’s a charming art installation.

Mr. Chanute designed several railroad lines in this region of Kansas and so a town was named after him.

These sculptures, both on the ground and in the air are kinetic sculptures – moved by the Kansas wind.


  1. That was interesting. Thanks for posting the signs. This is part of the whole flying history and should have been taught in schools all these years. I never heard of this man before, or if I did, I’ve forgotten, so it wasn’t emphasized at all.
