DETROIT (AP) -- A group working to save part of Rosie the Riveter's old factory says it has signed a purchase agreement for the property west of Detroit.
The Yankee Air Museum announced Monday it is moving forward with a deal to buy 144,000 square feet of the former Willow Run Bomber Plant.
The museum says in a statement that, assuming an upcoming inspection goes well, it will close on the purchase "in a few weeks."
The Save the Willow Run Bomber Plant campaign has raised millions of dollars in an effort to save part of the factory for use as the museum's new home.
The rest of the Ypsilanti Township plant, where Rose Will Monroe helped make bombers during World War II, is being razed.
