In 1981, a group of enthusiastic people, adopting the name Yankee Air Force, shared the desire to preserve the facts and glamour of southeastern Michigan's aviation history. They began to lay plans to research, restore, and preserve the all but forgotten history of Willow Run Airport. Their initial goal was to aquire one of the original U. S. Army Air Force's hangars and restore it to its original condition.

With the help of Wayne County, the owners of the airport, this first goal was accomplished and the Yankee Air Museum was born. The YAM now has three divisions: Saginaw Valley and Wurtsmith Divisions in Michigan and the Northeast Division in New Jersey.
