About Our Statue

The Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce, The City of Auburn, the Auburn Airport Business Park Association and many other community volunteers are taking the lead once again, to commerate our local hero and home town resident, Col. C.E. Bud Anderson by commissioning a local Artist, Douglas Van Howd, to create a life size image of the Col. along with his famous P-51 Mustang, Old Crow.

The Statue is being created but we are raising funds for its completion and placement at the Auburn Airport. Be a part of history by making a tax deductible donation to the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, a 501 (c) (3) organization.
