Radiant Heaters Installed


Six - 60 ft. radiant heaters have been installed in our main hangar by C.R. Kurtz. These heaters are significantly more efficient, less noisy and provide a more consistent heat than the old rotation unit that we have used for many years.

The funding for this very important improvement was provided by The Timken Foundation and GAR Foundation. We want to thank them both for supporting MAPS Air Museum.

P-51 Gets Her Plaques

Sunday June 14 was a very special day. It was Flag Day, It was Bob Withee's 94th Birthday and it was the day the P-51 Monument received her plaques. One for Bob Withee, One for 112th Fighter Squadron and One for the Organizations who helped with the project.

Thank You Bob for your friendship and leadership. Also, thanks to all who were in attendance and took part in this wonderful day especially Ralph Lynn who recited "High Flight" from his daughters home in South Carolina. We miss you Ralph.
