More than 4,000 Corsairs were built at the Goodyear plant in Akron, Ohio, during World War II, and the folks at the MAPS Air Museum want to hear from all the people who were there. All former pilots, mechanics, designers and builders are asked to contact the museum, and they will be recognized at a special ceremony at this summer's Aero Expo air show, June 19-20, at Akron Fulton Airport. They will also receive free tickets to the air show. Two Corsairs that were built in Akron will be on display and will fly during the weekend. Other fly-bys will include the B-2 Stealth Bomber, the F-117 Stealth Fighter, a C-130 formation, and a B-52 Stratofortress. For more information, call the MAPS Museum at 330-896-6332 (Akron) or 330-494-3577 (Canton).
