WWII B-24 Liberator Bomber Specifications. 

The WWII B-24 Liberator bomber was built in a factory called Willow Run in Detroit Michigan.  The factory was built by Henry Ford and designed by Charles E. Sorensen.  The willow run factory was named willow run because is it was built on the willow run creek.  This is interesting because the last person to live on the willow run property was Warren Benjamin Kidder.  I have spoken to Ben, personally, and he is one of the nicest people that anyone could ever meet.  Ben wrote a book called Willow Run, Colossus of Industry, a book about the production of the B-24 liberator, military bomber.  When the factory was in full production it produced a B-24 liberator every 56 minutes.  This factory is one of Henry Ford 's greatest achievements. 

This famous WWII bomber fought its way through the dangerous skies of Europe and the Pacific. The B-24 Liberator bomber was one of the most versatile and important  aircraft of that era. It did not get the press attention that the Flying Fortress received, but it certainly earned its way by fighting through swarms of Luftwaffe fighters to drop bombs on the Third Reich. It earned the same laurels in the Pacific.

Please Note:  The specifications on this page are only for a single model of this airplane other models of the B-24 Liberator may vary.  This aircraft art gallery page has lots of aviation art prints, posters, pictures and pictures, so please give it time to load.

Commissioned to replace the B-17, the Liberator was built in near-record time. The machine was designed around the long-span low-drag Davis wing, a new concept at the time of production. Early models were soon superseded on all production lines by the J model, the most successful B-24 of all time. When production ceased on 31 May 1945, 18,475 Liberators had been made, making it the most produced American aircraft of WW2.  Look at the Willow Run WW2 B-24 Liberator Bomber Exhibit Here        See the Mighty Eighth Air Force World War II Exhibit Here.    See the New Eight Air Force WW2 Movie Script Here.
