The eye-catching plane is intended to harken back to the mid-1980's, a time when small family farms across the nation were struggling to stay operational. Many will remember the popular Farm Aid concerts of the era that aimed to establish a relief fund for these independent farmers.
Today, the Danway Plane (named after the incorporated community in which it resides) is known to most a popular roadside attraction and photo op. After all, it's not everyday you have the opportunity to see a crumpled 1940's plane wedged into the earth at a startling 45 degree angle!
To see the Danway Plane for yourself, head to the intersection of IL Route 71 and E. 25th Rd, Norway, IL. Heading South out of Norway towards Ottawa, you'll spot this mass of metallic wreckage on the left side of the road.
