Another important piece of the F-100D SuperSabre was installed Saturday. She welcomed the attachment of her fuel tanks.
Jean Ann III our full scale P-51 model is being moved to the hanger for final assembly, final painting and detailing. We hope to get approval from the Airport to place it on Massillon Road by the Green Highway Department.
Saturday was another big day for the B-26 as the crew installs the rudder.
Last year, the younger members of MAPS asked permission to restore the amphibian plane. Their original goal was to paint it so it could be included in the Memorial Day Parade. They met their goal by loading Holly on a trailer and Larry Lewis pulled it with his truck. They had some more work to do and found out that the Fighter Group wanted to store the aircraft at the restaurant. Josh Stiles, his friends, his family, his co-members and anyone he could recruit helped meet the deadlines. Congratulations to everyone involved. Good Job!

Saturday 6/30/12 was a special day at MAPS. A large group of Rosie the Riveters came to visit. These ladies stepped in during WWII to build the planes, tanks, ships and equipment needed for the war effort. Many sacrifices were made by everyone to win the war that had to be won. Thank You everyone.
Here some of the ladies are escorted by Tour Guide Ralph Lynn. How appropriate it was to have Mr. Lynn show the ladies around. You see he was a B-24 Pilot during WWII and flew combat missions over Germany and occupied France.
Dave Pawski and lots of MAPS Members install the Right Wing on the B-26 for the first time since it was brought back from Alaska. Many MAPS Members have made contributions to the plane during the past 15 years. Congratulations to everyone who helped restore the aircraft. Next Saturday is the target for the installation of the Left Wing.
