Food, Fun, and Military History

You can get hungry building B-24 bombers.
The Bomber Restaurant was first given its name in 1942 by Florence Bladwin [sic] Averill. The massive Ford B-24 bomber plant had just opened at nearby Willow Run Airport to supply aircraft for our World War II efforts. Thousands of people worked around the clock at the plant, and the Bomber stayed open 24 hours a day to feed them. After various owners over the years, the Bomber Restaurant now serves food within an engaging display of military history.
