 Ford's B-24 Bomber
  
Bet you didn't know that Ford had its own pilots to test the B-24 Liberators it was building for the ARMY at the rate of one every 55 MINUTES!!
 
Subj: B-24 LIBERATOR - Willow Run, MI. (FoMoCo airplane)
 
 
 
 
A little bit of history for aviation buffs. 
 
This was BEFORE Pearl Harbor! Ford's B-24 Bomber Plant at Willow Run, Mich.  Henry Ford was determined that he could mass produce bombers just as he had done with cars.
 
He built the Willow Run assembly plant and proved it. It was the world's largest building under one roof.
 
This film will absolutely blow you away - one B-24 every 55 minutes.
 
ADOLF HITLER HAD NO IDEA THE U.S. WAS CAPABLE OF THIS KIND OF THING.
