Air Force Museum receives $10k donation


Modern Technology Solutions, Inc. (MTSI) presented the Air Force Museum Foundation Thursday with a $10,000 donation to support a forthcoming new building at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. The building will house Presidential aircraft, Space, Global Reach, and Research & Development exhibits.

Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Richard V. Reynolds, Chairman of the Air Force Museum Foundation’s Board of Managers said “The fourth building is vital to further expand facilities to tell the Air Force story, to provide greater public understanding and appreciation for the Air Force’s role as an integrated air, space and cyberspace force and provide new science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning opportunities for America’s youth. MTSI’s generous donation will have a positive impact for many generations to come, and we are proud to recognize them for that.”

Modern Technology Solutions, Inc. formed in 1993, provides technical services in unmanned systems, ballistic missile defense, air vehicle survivability, flight test operations and systems engineering.

Current plans call for building to be opened in 2015.
