Yankee Museum To Hold Polishing Party Saturday

4/3/09 – For anyone who has a love for vintage aircraft, an event this weekend in Ypsilanti will provide a rare chance to get up close and personal. The Yankee Air Museum is hosting their 14th annual Polishing Party and Bomber Buffing event in which the general public is invited to help become a crew member for a few hours to a B-17, B-25 or C-47 aircraft. Bruce Stoddart of Pinckney is a crew member on the Yankee Warrior B-25 and says participants can touch the aircraft, crawl all over them and take as many pictures as they want. In exchange, they have to bring some elbow grease and help polish the planes so they are ready for airshow season. The polishing party starts Saturday morning at 9am at the Yankee Air Museum hangar at Willow Run Airport. It’s free and open to the public and all those who pitch in will be served a hot dog lunch. Details can be downloaded below. (JK)
