HELP BUILD A HANGAR
Bring them home!
Two new 15,000 sq. ft. hangars at Willow Run Airport
THE YANKEE AIR MUSEUM NEEDS YOUR HELP TODAY!
We are facing one of the most compelling problems in our history. Hangar 1 at Willow Run Airport is closing. This is where we leased space to maintain our B-17 Yankee Lady, B-25 Yankee Warrior, C-47 Hairless Joe, and the Waco biplane. The flyable aircraft need a new home and time is of the essence to build one.
We have studied the options, consulted with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Wayne County Airport Authority and have reached the only conclusion: Yankee Air Museum needs to build our own permanent home. The hangar must be a modern environment close to our volunteer base. There are no other feasible choices and therefore it is time to move forward with the urgent task of planning, financing and constructing a hangar at Willow Run Airport.
Will you please help us? These hangars must be built. By donating to this project you will also be contributing to the strength of Yankee Air Museum by assuring our historic flyable aircraft remain airworthy and revenue-generating. This is a chance to be part of something colossal. Will you please donate?
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Elisa Guyton, Associate Development Director at 734-483-4030 ext. 227.
