A vintage military aircraft museum in Galveston that was swamped by Hurricane Ike in 2008 and survived Harvey after recently moving to Houston has opened. Officials with the Lone Star Flight Museum unveiled the $38 million facility last weekend at Ellington Airport.

The museum was to open September 2 but delayed ceremonies as parts of Houston were flooded by Harvey. Spokeswoman Lisa Spence said that the new complex wasn't damaged.
