KANKAKEE, Illinois — The Ian Fleming Foundation marked the 20th anniversary of the group’s “work weekends,” where volunteers refurbish vehicles that have appeared in James Bond movies.
The foundation owns more than 35 such vehicles, about half stored at Kankakee, Illinois, the other half stored in the U.K.
The group normally conducts two work weekends in Illinois a year, one in the spring, one in the fall.
This weekend’s event centered on moving the vehicles stored in Illinois from one airport hangar to a larger one at the same facility.
The vehicles involved included a truck from Licence to Kill, a Jaguar sports car from Die Another Day and the Q boat from The World Is Not Enough.
The foundation was formed in 1992. A description of the group’s activities can be found on its website.
