Save the Bomber Plant!

The former Willow Run bomber plant in Ypsilanti Township — built by Henry Ford to make planes for the U.S. military during World War II and later used as a powertrain plant by General Motors — is likely to be razed later this year to make way for new development.

The mission of Warbirds News is to play a role in safeguarding the heritage of aviation history by providing increased awareness and education through the use of internet based digital media. When the Yankee Air Museum called for help promoting their fundraising campaign we didn’t hesitate a minute.

As many of you know, the Yankee Air Museum and Michigan Aerospace Foundation are raising funds to preserve a portion of the former B-24 Liberator Bomber Plant at Willow Run to someday become the new home of the Museum.
Willow Run is where more than 40,000 workers from across America came together to build more than 8,800 B-24 Liberator bombers, and help win the war. The iconic Rosie the Riveter (Rose Will Monroe, from Pulaski, KY) did her riveting here. The Bomber Plant is an historic treasure that deserves preservation.
The Bomber Plant is a unique structure and a tremendous opportunity to create a more dynamic, educational and inspirational Yankee Air Museum. The Save the Bomber Plant Campaign is garnering great media support and is picking up speed.

But It’s getting to crunch time. The museum needs to raise $4.9 milllion in the next few weeks to take advantage of this never-to-be repeated opportunity. So, we hope you will follow the link below to the campaign website to learn more about our project, the campaign and consider making a gift. Remember, every $50 helps preserve one square foot of this important piece of our history.
