This is Miles. He’s 11, and he loves the Willow Run Bomber Plant.
The Rosies heard about him when we were talking with tailgaters at a recent U of M football game. But we had no way to find him. Fortunately, he and his family heard we were at the Orphan Car Show in Ypsilanti, and they came down to meet us.
You see, Miles loves the plant so much, he draws beautiful pictures of it and sells them to raise money for the campaign to save a small portion of the plant as a new home for the Yankee Air Museum.
He also creates drawings of the Ford Motor Company’s Highland Park Plant, another industrial treasure worth saving.
Miles and his family have created a Facebook Page for his art, and he sells his drawings, nicely matted and ready to frame, for $10 each.
