The Yankee Air Museum is an aviation museum located at Willow Run Airport. The museum has a small fleet of flying aircraft and a collection of static display aircraft outdoors. Touch, feel, and interact with some of the most amazing aircraft throughout aviation history.

Learn how they were made and operated. The Story of the Yankee Air Museum begins in 1941 when Willow Run Airport was built by the Ford Motor Company to serve as an airfield for their B-24 Bomber Plant. This was the first aircraft manufacturing complex to use Ford’s automotive mass production technique, a leading technological innovation of the time.

While several of its archives and displays were destroyed by fire in 2004, the museum still operates its historic flight experience in some of their restored Bomber planes.
