Kansas Coliseum - Opened in 1977 and closed in 2010. In January of 2012, the Coliseum was purchased and has been turned into an aviation research facility. Mainly used for CHL hockey, home to the Wichita Wind (CHL) 1980-1983 and the Wichita Thunder (CHL) 1993-2010. Due to its remote location, the Coliseum became obsolete.

The blue Toyota pickup truck in the middle is mine :). I had just come from Arlington Texas on my way back home to so. Cal via Denver. The back is loaded with seats, concession signs, programs and media guides from the old Arlington stadium, which was being demolished.

Sean Mulligan takes a cut. Mulligan would play 2 games for the Padres in 1996. He was famously traded for $50,000.00 and a treadmill. Rumors are he had a bad attitude.
