The Yankee Air Museum wants to buy part of the plant where B-24 bombers were built during World War II to use as its new home.

It'll cost six million dollars to buy the very end of the former Willow Run Powertrain plant where the bombers rolled out from 1942 to 1945.  That's according to Dennis Norton, President of the Michigan Aerospace Foundation - the sister organization and funding arm of the Yankee Air Museum.
