Rosies and B-17 show up for weekend

Rosie Grace, three Rosebuds and some visitors ring bells commemorating workers in World War II.

The Museum hosted a bell ringing September 2 that was part of a national thanks to all Rosie the Riveters who helped in World War II.

The Liberty Foundation brought in its B-17 Flying Fortress Madras Maiden for the weekend but some bad luck kept it grounded. People were still able to admire the historic aircraft and take tours.


The weather did not deter fans who are waiting to get a ride on the Madras Maiden Saturday morning.

Coming to a museum near you


The Paint Team has been working hard to restore one of the Museum's RB-57A's.  After nearly a year of restoring, cleaning and painting, the aircraft is getting its final gloss coat.  This RB-57A was repainted in its black livery to reflect its mission as a night reconnaissance aircraft in Europe during the 1950s.

We missed you!

Volunteers get the table ready for bargain seekers.
Hundreds of visitors took a chance on the weather to come to the last Open Cockpit and Flea Market of the year at the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation  Museum on Saturday. Buyers scooped up aviation photos, books and models at the Museum's table and still had time and money to check out all the merchandise  from the other vendors.

Families enjoyed the overcast and cool walk along the historic aircraft at Strawberry Point and the children were thrilled to sit in the cockpit of an historic  fighter, airliner or attack helicopter.

Don't forget the Museum is open all year long and you can visit the aircraft, just can't sit inside!

Spreading the word

Regina Buehl tells about the many accomplishments of Glenn Martin.
Members took the story of Glenn Martin and his company on the road Tuesday, although they did not have to travel far to find an audience at the Essex Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library. Regina Buehl, Stan Marzec, Steve Payne and other Museum members answered questions and offered glimpses into what motivated them to enjoy their volunteer time at the museum.
