Save the Bomber Plant Campaign: Urgent! Hangar Space Needed Now!
The Save The Bomber Plant Campaign is dedicated to preserving a portion of the historic Willow Run Bomber Plant by renovating it to become the new home of the expanded Yankee Air Museum.
Building a new hangar space for Yankee Air Museum’s flyable aircraft is a critical phase of the Save the Bomber Plant Campaign. Our flyable aircraft’s current home, Willow Run Airport Hangar One, will be decommissioned in 2019, and our flyables urgently need a new home.
When completed, the new Museum will have new exhibits and innovative programming that will celebrate Willow Run’s unique history, share the excitement of flight, spark an interest in manufacturing and technology, and benefit the local community. Willow Run, with its unique history, offers unsurpassed learning opportunities for children and adults to learn about our local and national history, the changing American workforce, the story of creating “just-in-time” manufacturing, and the economic and social development of this region.
