"More Bob-lo Memories"
“More Bob-lo Memories” will bring you back to the fun-filled summer days of taking a steamboat ride down the Detroit River to our region’s one-of-a-kind island amusement park. Shown at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. Running time: 42 minutes. 

"Heroes on Deck"
During World War II, just off Chicago’s shoreline, the US Navy trained over 15,000 carrier pilots on two makeshift “flattops,” both former, coal-fired, sidewheel passenger steamers. Not every pilot landed successfully on the pitching decks of the USS Wolverine and USS Sable and many aircraft went to the Lake bottom. This is the story of the recovery of those rare warbirds and the ingenious training program that changed the course of the war in the Pacific. Running Time: 56 minutes.
