I have always been amazed when we discuss vintage aircraft and I always relate the story of the DC3. During the height of production on any given day, you start your shift and when you go home there are TWO brand spanking new DC3s sitting on the flight line. That was before I found this.
The Genius of Henry Ford is readily apparent and this was BEFORE Pearl Harbor! At Ford's B-24 Bomber Plant at Willow Run, MI. Henry 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. Even then FORD HAD A BETTER IDEA!
This film will absolutely blow you away – one B-24 every 55 minutes.
