AFTER: Willow Run airlines spent more than $700,000 for an expansion-renovation project at the terminal in 1957 as the first phase of a still-uncompleted $1,500,000 improvement program. The renovation was not authorized, however, until after American Airlines had announced it would switch to Wayne county's then-vacant airport. The terminal work included installation of an attractive false ceiling, new seating and flooring and other major improvements. Further large-scale expansion presumably will come if the seven present Willow Run carriers decide to remain at the Washtenaw airfield.
