Rosie the Riveter Says Save The Bomber Plant!
Henry Ford's historic WWII plant, home of Rosie the Riveter and the B-24 Liberator bomber, and later GM's Powertrain powerhouse, is an important piece of our history. Let's preserve a small portion of it as a NEW home for the Yankee Air Museum, to exist side-by-side with the new planned redevelopment at Willow Run. $50 saves 1 sq. ft. of the plant at http://www.savethebomberplant.org. We can do it!
