A restored B-26 that resides at the MAPS Air Museum in Canton, Ohio — and that is featured in the production — is one of the rarest military aircraft on display as there are only six in existence.
PBS and MAPS Air Museum are offering an early preview of the series’ first episode, followed by a Q&A with the MAPS Air Museum Crew Chief of the B-26 and a tour of the aircraft. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. The event is expected to last approximately 90 minutes.
