1944: Detroit

Ford Motor Company’s giant Willow Run plant in 1944.

Willow Run produced the massive, four-engine B-24 Liberator bomber.

One B-24 rolled off the Willow Run assembly line, ready to fly, each hour for three years.

A similar plant in Fort Worth, Texas, also produced one B-24 Liberator per hour.
