Cessna part of new exhibit

February 05, 2007

New aircraft exhibits are being installed, and additional displays are planned at the Hagerstown Aviation Museum.

One of the new displays includes a Cessna 150 that has been prepared for hands-on, interactive display. Tracey Potter, museum member and president of Hagerstown Aircraft Services Inc., donated the aircraft. Potter's company provided all the volunteer labor and materials, and converted the plane to a museum-ready, child-friendly interactive exhibit.

The plane was partially disassembled and then reassembled, making sure that all aspects of the plane are safe for young people to explore. The cabin is carpeted, and any sharp or protruding edges have been covered or removed.

Museum visitors can take turns at working the controls, checking the instruments and tuning the radio while listening to information and instructions from airport flight controllers.
