“perfect place for the plane enthusiast”
The MAPS Air Museum, run by the Military Aircraft Preservation Society, is located at the Akron-Canton Regional Airport in Green, Ohio, USA. The museum was started in 1991 and is operated by a group of volunteers. The hangar in which the museum displays aircraft is a former US National Guard hangar. The National Guard has built a larger hangar to suit their needs on the northern part of the airport where MAPS is located (on the west side of the airport). The museum currently has over 20 aircraft and a collection of rare artifacts. Volunteer crews are working to restore several warbirds to non-flying, museum quality. Aircraft include a C-47 Skytrain, Mig-17, F-14 Tomcat, F-84, F-100D, B-26 Marauder, F-4 Phantom, S-2 Tracker, 0-2 Skymaster, C-37 Tweet, Vought Corsair 2, F-11 Tiger, as well as two aircraft from the Goodyear Rubber Company located in Akron. The Gallery of Heroes The museum also has a display room with detailed models and period items from wars. This area, dubbed "the gallery of heroes", has displays on Pearl Harbor, The Tuskegee Airmen, Rosie the Riveter, and other displays of members of the museum and community that fought in wars and have loaned their items to the museum to be put on display.
