MCM Supports Industry and Education Through Partnership with GT Baker Aviation
In continuous support of industry and education, MCM has partnered once again with George T. Baker Aviation School.
The school approached MCM for assistance in removing two 8’x20’ containers that were sitting in their parking area. Our own Jerry Foster, and a crew from NW 36th Street, worked to remove the containers.
In addition, the school needed three yards of concrete in order to pour three anchor tie-down pads to secure their newly restored Vietnam-era fighter jet. The jet was recently given a new coat of paint and decals. The school plans to use it in honoring the first fighter pilot who was shot down during the Vietnam War in that model jet (and as a result spent eight years in a POW camp).
Ana DePriest arranged for the generous donation of the concrete by Supermix, while Phil Hamlin and Ernie Hernandez coordinated our crew to complete the project.
MCM and GT Baker Aviation previously partnered in 2012. At that time, GT Baker Aviation approached MCM for assistance in relocating a retired 737 jet from Miami International Airport to their campus property. The plane (showcasing the MCM logo on its side) still remains at the school today, and is used for education and training.
GT Baker Aviation is also assisting MCM in the preservation of the motor gears that will be presented to FDOT D-6 in the next few weeks.
