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.
