Inscription.  Mike Macario purchased the An-2 from the Air Mobility Command (AMC) Museum, Dover, DE and donated it to the Massey Museum in the name of his mother, Katherine (Kate) Macario. Longtime friend of Massey Aerodrome, Kate Macario passed away on September 6, 2019. Kate regularly flew to our fly-Ins in her Cessna 195 and was a pioneer with the 99's. The AMC Museum determined that a Russian plane didn't belong in their collection and was going to dispose of it, Mike saved it from very likely being scrapped! We moved it from Dover to Massey on Feb. 24, 2020.
 
Erected 2020 by Massey Air Museum.
