The Yankee Air Museum is seeking a dedicated band of passionate volunteers to help the organization restore it’s Consolidated PB4Y-2 Privateer (BuNo.Bu59876) at their facility in Willow Run, Michigan. If you have ever wanted to work on a big, WWII-era bomber, now is your chance. No prior experience necessary. For further details, please see the museum’s press-release below…

HELP WANTED: The Yankee Air Museum needs talented and dedicated volunteers for its PB4Y-2 Privateer restoration project. The PB4Y-2 is a derivative of the B-24 Liberator and as such is a key part of the Museum’s aircraft collection.
This restoration project requires people that are good with their hands, pay close attention to detail, and a willingness to follow directions. The Privateer is housed in the historic Willow Run Bomber Plant – so you will be doing your part to help preserve Southeast Michigan’s aviation history. The crew works on Saturdays only, and no aviation experience is required.
If you join the team, you’ll find a group of fellow volunteers that are dedicated to aviation history – and a great group of people to work with and accomplish important work for the Museum.
Please contact Tom Carroll at volunteers@yankeeairmuseum.org for more information about this opportunity.

The Yankee Air Museum’s PB4Y-2 Privateer served in the U.S. Coast Guard following WWII, and would have resembled this example during that time. (image via Wikipedia)
