Wisconsin Aviation History
Researched by Steve Stuczynski

One of the many Wisconsin produced products during World War II was the strong and lightweight plywood plants located throughout Wisconsin. Algoma, Stevens Point, Fond du Lac, Butternut, Oshkosh, Marshfield, Mellen, and Park Falls all supplied plywood for the construction of about 5,000 plywood gliders destined for the Normandy Invasion, as well as for the construction of the British Mosquito bomber, Cessna trainers, and Howard Hugh’s Hercules, more commonly known as the “Spruce Goose”.
