WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Sedgwick County commissioners have approved a $10,000 grant for this weekend's "Wings Over McConnell" air show but won't be using a special hospitality tent that was to come with the donation.

Commissioner Richard Ranzau had questioned spending the money on what he called a "party tent" at the McConnell Air Force Base event in Wichita.

Commissioners initially were offered a special "chalet tent" where they and other leaders would be treated to a catered meal and beverages. Instead, the Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/VKejWi ) reports a tent now will be available for anyone seeking some shade.

Backers of the donation say supporting the air show is important because McConnell generates more than $500 million each year for the Wichita area economy.
