WRESTLING


	On October 30, The Yankee Air Museum attempted to set a Guinness World Record for “Most Rosies In One Place”  in support of the campaign to save the Bomber Plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Regardless, high spirits were in the air and four real-life Rosies who worked at the Bomber Plant building B-24 liberators during World War II were also present.
