From left to right Hilda Havlik, Christy Hoffman, Deb Hoffman, and Betty Jones attended the successful record-breaking event at the Willow Run Bomber Plan for the largest gathering of people dressed as Rosie Riveter.

It's official - the 778 people who gathered at the former Willow Run bomber plant set a new world record for the number of people gathered in one place dressed as Rosie the Riveter.


The Yankee Air Museum received a letter from publishers of the Guinness Book of World Records indicating that "you have successfully achieved a new Guinness World Records title for 'largest gathering of people dressed as Rosie the Riveter'". 

The museum still needs to raise about $1.25 million by May 1st to save a portion of the plant to use as its new home.
