Yankee Air Museum

Join local author Barry D. Levine for an evening of aviation history. Barry will share highlights from his new book, Yankee Air Museum which tells the story of this beloved, local historical attraction. 

The Willow Run Bomber Plant opened in 1941 and produced over 8,600 B-24 Liberator bombers, a key element of the Allied arsenal in World War II. In 1981, a group of aviation enthusiasts established the Yankee Air Museum about a mile away from the original bomber plant. The museum built a substantial collection of flyable and static aircraft and aviation artifacts, many of which were destroyed in a 2004 fire. Despite this loss, the museum has remained open in temporary facilities while considering options for a permanent home.
