The Maine Aviation Historical Society Maine Air Museum is looking for World War II “plane spotters” from Waldo County and Eastern Maine.

The organization seeks people who served as volunteers in the Ground Observer Corps during World War II. Approximately 1.5 million males and females of all ages tended 14,000 observation posts along the country’s coastlines visually searching skies for aircraft during the war.

Reports were called in to Regional Filter Centers, where they were tracked and determined to be friendly or hostile. John Miller, Maine Air Museum director, recently acquired a collection of items pertaining to “plane spotters.” They are on display at the Maine Air Museum, 98 Maine Ave., Bangor International Airport, near Hammond Street.

Miller is looking for photos of sites and volunteers from Waldo County and Eastern Maine for a “then and now” display.

People with knowledge of the Ground Observer Corps are asked to contact Miller at Miller’s Field in Newburgh at 207-234-2777.

The Maine Air Museum will be open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sundays, 12-4 p.m., starting Memorial Day weekend.

The museum has more than 50 exhibits featuring the rich aviation history of Maine, including one of a Belfast native who held a world aviation record for 26 years.
