|Tour group listens to docent Jane Michael talk about the C Building at Lockheed Martin Corporation.|
Visitors got a personal tour of the main museum and those interested got a peek into the Museum archives, which contain over 100,000 images, a large collection of aviation books and numerous artifacts from the Glenn Martin Co. and Maryland aviation history.
Activities kept the children busy while adults got a chance to see the Museum's Gallery and Restoration Center in the basement of C Building at the Lockheed Martin Corporation. There they saw historic aircraft and two of the long-term project being undertaken: a full-size replica of the Martin MS-1 submarine sea plane and a World War II training glider being built by EAA Chapter 143. Among the aircraft on display was "The Spirit of Maryland."
Everyone got a chance to visit the Strawberry Point flight line and look inside the Museum's TA-4J fighter and RB-57A bomber.
GLM members will get a chance to see the BMI when a members-only tour is scheduled for Sunday June 30. If you're a GLM Museum member and want to go, contact the museum at 410-682-6122 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no cost, but you have to provide you own transportation.
