Building a B-26

Young visitors put together the fuselage of a Martin B-26.

In February, dozens of 5th through middle school family member assembled a student-sized portion of the fuselage of a Martin B-26. The "work shifts" ran 11AM to 2 PM. The program was designed to foster teamwork and teach how aircraft were assembled during World War II. Now that the program has had its test flight, it will be returning as a regular feature for school groups. The museum can always use volunteers to help with the program. Contact the museum, if interested.
