Group gets more time to save Willow Run Bomber Plant

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The group overseeing the facilities owned by General Motors prior to their bankruptcy is giving a group more time to raise money to save the Willow Run Bomber Plant.

The Revitalizing Auto Communities Environmental Response Trust has given the Save the Bomber Plant campaign until October 1st to raise an additional 3.5-million dollars to preserve the 175-thousand square feet plant.  The area would be site of a newly expanded Yankee Air Museum.

The Willow Run plant was where Rose Monroe was found by Hollywood producers who cast her as "Rosie the Riveter" in a government film about the war effort at home.
