Hard on the heels of the Confederate Air Force changing its name to the Commemorative Air Force to appease the forces of political correctness, we now hear the fabled Yankee Air Force Museum is about to change it's storied name as well.
The Detroit News: Air museum to drop ‘Yankee’ as it flies toward new era
The Yankee Air Museum will be soaring shortly into welcoming skies and a bright future, complete with an inspiring and appropriate new name.
Either that, or the new name will be a sniveling kowtow to the gods of political correctness.
That depends on your perspective, and how strongly you feel about the word “Yankee.” But the part about soaring is hard to argue with.
As for the new name, the museum at Willow Run Airport expects to reveal it within two to six weeks, at the same time it officially acquires a chunk of the historic Willow Run bomber plant that churned out B24s during World War II.
So take a museum and show with world-wide name recognition linked to air shows and historic aircraft with no real (or even imagined) negative connotations, and change it for no good reason.
