Historic planes touch down at MAPS Museum
Among those who spent the day at the museum were World War II veteran Laird Cogley, 91, of Windham, a member of the Liberator ground crew, who is shown below, at left, with his son Larry Cogley next to a B-24 Liberator.
Canton residents Sue and Ray Chiappini are pictured at right as they walk through the B-17 Flying Fortress.
The weekend also included the chance to fly in the planes and the opportunity to operate them with a donation to the foundation, a nonprofit educational organization devoted to supporting living history events to encourage learning by participation.
The MAPS Museum features a display of historic military aircraft. For more information, go to www.mapsairmuseum.org or call 330-896-6332.
