PROVO, Utah (AP) -- World War II airplanes will soon fly to their new home -- Provo.

In 1961, the Commemorative Air Force organized and restored 300-thousand airplanes flown in the World War II-era.

Now, some of those planes are headed to Provo to stay.

C-A-F Utah Wing Commander Dave Barber said Provo will have a place for the aircraft, a new hangar and a new museum.

C-A-F Utah Wing Leader Colonel David Meyer said there's a piece of property at the Provo airport where a facility can be built. He said they just need 85-thousand dollars in donations to make it happen.

Meyer said the new museum will include 22 display cases for ammunitions, engine parts and uniforms. Meyer said they plan to open it this summer.
