Adopt one of our aircraft

For the first time, the aircraft of the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum will be available—for adoption. The aircraft can’t be taken home, and adopters won’t be responsible for care of the aircraft. Funds raised will help maintain the aircraft on display at Strawberry Point.

Thirteen of the museum’s aircraft are available for adoption, including the Martin 4-O-4 airliner, the UH-1M Huey helicopter and the F-100F Super Sabre. For a $25 donation, donors receive a personalized adoption certificate and a fact sheet about the aircraft they have adopted. They also receive recognition on the website. Adoptions are good for one year and are suggested for the aviation fan, all occasions (Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, graduation, etc.) or to honor someone special.

Visit the museum’s website to download a form or adopt and aircraft online.

The Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum is located at 701 Wilson Point Road, Middle River. Call 410-682-6122 for further information.
