The results of the 2015 MAPS Raffle are as follows:
We would like to thank everyone who sold tickets in support of this very important fund raiser for MAPS. We do this during a very slow time and it helps pay our huge winter utility bills. This year we had revenue of $11,855 and represented 43.5% participation from our membership. Again, thank you for your support of this very important fund raiser.
We would like to thank the recovery crew headed by Wayne Noall and Jerry Leeks. Also included on the team were Tony Bistransky, Paul Gates, and Chet Starn. We want to thank all of them for their tireless effort to bring the F-16 to her new home at MAPS Air Museum. She arrived on April 18 at 10:00 with a crowd of onlookers after eight years of saving and planning. Also, thanks to everyone who supported the project.

This is a picture of F-16A 80-0513 that was pulled across the road from 309 AMARG in Tucson, AZ to PIMA Air Museum. It is the F-16 that will be transported to MAPS Air Museum and added to our inventory. The target date of the pickup is the first week of March 2015. We have been looking forward to this acquisition for several years and she will be a wonderful addition to MAPS. I would like to thank all of the people who have worked to bring her here.
