MAPS Receives Community Award

2014 community award

MAPS Air Museum has received the 2014 Community Award from the Green Chamber of Commerce. Green is growing and So is MAPS Air Museum. With record numbers of visitors each year, the museum not only provides a social venue for volunteer veterans but also shares the history and significant role of aviation in the development of our country. With over 43 planes to touch and feel as former military personnel tell their stories, MAPS is one of Green’s greatest destinations.

F9F Cougar runs in the Timken HOF Grand Parade

Thank you goes out to The Pro-Football HOF Committee for inviting MAPS to this year’s parade. A special thanks to the Jackson Police, North Canton Police and all of the MAPS Members who helped transport the airplane to the parade. Several MAPS Members walked in the parade along with Dr. Richard Maioriello’s family. Doc is the owner of the F9F Cougar and actually flew this aircraft for the Navy. Thanks Doc for letting us put her in the parade.
