A flock of warbirds will be the stars of the latest expansion of the National World War II Museum.
Construction of the $35 million U.S. Freedom Pavilion: Land, Sea and Air will be formally announced Friday as part of the museum’s overall $300 million expansion.
The pavilion will be financed by a $20 million grant through the Department of Defense and $15 million given by the Boeing Co.
One of Boeing’s most famous World War II aircraft, the B-17G Flying Fortress heavy bomber, will be a centerpiece of the new exhibit.
Other aircraft to be displayed include North American B-25J Mitchell medium bomber, a General Motors TBM Avenger torpedo plane and a Douglas SBD Dautless dive bomber.">http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2010/08/world_war_ii_museums_35_millio.html
