20150902_133915-webWelcome to the Champaign Aviation Museum in Urbana, Ohio. See volunteers rebuild historic aircraft like the “Champaign Lady” B-17 WWII Bomber. You can even try your hand at being “Rosie the Riveter.” See this aircraft and the “Champaign Gal” B-25, A-26 Invader, C-45 Expeditor, Fairchild F-24 and a Civil Air Patrol plane that sank a German sub off the U.S. East Coast. It also features special exhibits such as Women Air Service Pilots and World War II artifacts. It’s an up-close and personal hands-on experience all in an open hangar. You can even sit in the cockpit of a C-47 cargo plane. Grimes Field Airport and restaurant are just down the tarmac. Come, help make these old warbirds fly again.
