WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A business that was suppose to be coming to Wilmington is heading to Illinois instead.

The Air Force One Museum's board of directors decided to build it in the Chicago area.

Wilmington, along with several other locations in North Carolina, had been considered.

The museum would include at least one presidential aircraft and have space for special events, a theater, a restaurant, and a gift shop.
