INDIANAPOLIS — John Dillinger's getaway car will be on display at the Indianapolis International Airport for the next two years.

The 1933 Essex Terraplane was used by the Depression-era bank robber and folk hero in March and April 1934 until he and his brother crashed the car in a farm field. The car is on loan from the Crime Museum in Washington, D.C., and will be displayed at the airport starting this month until March 2015.

Dillinger was born in Indianapolis. He and his gang robbed several banks and police arsenals in Indiana during the 1930s.
