(HAGERSTOWN, MD — February 9, 2011) The Hagerstown Aviation Museum will be featured on Maryland Public Television’s newest show, Chesapeake Collectibles. The museum segment will air on MPT February 12th at 6:30pm and February 17th at 8pm. John Davis, host of MPT’s Motorweek, Ken Day, producer of Chesapeake Collectibles, and production crew visited Hagerstown last September during the annual fly-in.
“Knowing that the museum has a unique collection of aircraft built in Hagerstown, Maryland, Ken Day called us,” said John Seburn, museum president, “The museum is very grateful to be showcased on Maryland Public Television’s Chesapeake Collectibles. We discovered that John Davis went to school to be an aeronautical engineer so he thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Fairchild Aircraft during his tour of the flying boxcars,” Seburn stated.
