A bill commemorating the pilots who flew a long-range bomber during World War II and the women who built it could be voted on soon in the Michigan Senate.
The measure would name the B-24 Liberator the official aircraft of Michigan.
It was built at a Ford plant at the Willow Run Airport east of Ann Arbor.
At the time, the plant was the largest in the world.
Workers there – many of them women – were building a plane every 55 minutes.
The measure recently cleared a Senate committee.
The Michigan Senate is due back in Lansing on Wednesday.
