MAPS' T-37 at the U.S. Air Force Museum 26 years ago. Since 1981 it's been housed
by (at least) 2 different aviation museums, and when recovered by MAPS was sitting
out in a field. Our restoration work will be to repair the corrosion that has set in.

05/05/2007 - Rudder and Vertical Stabilizer removal day
Left: After rudder removal, Steve works on removing vertical stabilizer
new nutplates in the T-37 empennage. Years of exposure to Southern weather caused most of the
fasteners to be corroded beyond repair, so replacements are being installed• photo � James Kohan
prior to prep and painting, we're tracing the current markings for duplication later. We're in the
process of removing nutplates from the vertical stabilizer as well •
