Spruce Goose

I was discussing the idea of Rockford becoming a top 25 destination with friends, and we agreed that something way outside the box will be necessary to compete with Mountains, Oceans, lakes, Blues festivals, etc... Today, as I was reflecting on our conversation the idea of Rockford obtaining some sort of significant retired aircraft, space shuttle, or maybe even a submarine or Navy ship in the Rock river occured to me, for display in the museum campus area. Perhaps the bridge to nowhere could lead to it. Maybe something the local aerospace firms have colaborated on, or would fund. If you want to attract people from all over, you have to approach things from their perspective. What would get you to spend your time and money to go see, that isn't a naural resource?
