RACER Trust, the company handling the disposition of former General Motors properties, including the Willow Run plant, says the campaign's "success and momentum" warranted a 60-day extension. Thursday was supposed to be the deadline for the Yankee Air Museum to raise $8 million to buy a 175-thousand square foot section of the plant. To date, $4.5 million has been raised.
