On this day in 1942 the first B-24 Liberator Bomber, assembled through Ford’s automotive-style assembly process, was completed at the Willow Run plant. 24 more would be built that year. By April of 1944, the mighty factory was producing at an astonishing rate of a bomber-every-hour, contributing greatly to the Allied victory in World War II.
