FILE - In this July 17, 2013 file photo is part of the former Willow Run Bomber Plant at Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti Township, Mich. The factory went back to making automobiles after the World War II ended, and it did so for more than a half-century under the General Motors name before closing for good in 2010. A group trying to save the Detroit-area factory where Rosie the Riveter became an icon of American female empowerment during the war said Friday, March 28, 2014 that it must raise $1.5 million in the next few weeks to save the site from being demolished.
