B-24 Liberator Willow Run Assembly Plant

The manufacturing and construction production video for the Consolidated B-24 Liberator heavy bomber. This video is about the Ford Motor Company production plant at Willow Run for B-24’s before and during World War II. Ford Motor Company manufactured and built B-24 Liberators under license from Consolidated Aircraft Company. Production rates were so great at the Ford Willow Run plant, that a new B-24 rolled off the production line every 55 minutes.

This plant was dedicated 6 months prior to Pearl Harbor.

Thanks to JS for the link. Hooah.
