B-24 Liberator Surprise Attack Nose Art Panel

The Consolidated B-24 Liberator is the most distinguished bombers of WW II. 

The first bomber rolled off the assembly line at the Willow Run plant in Michigan in September 1942.

There was a total of 18,400 B-24 bombers built.  With 8,600 built at the Willow Run plant. The B-24 became the most produced production line Bomber in World War II. It gained a prestigious wartime record. Utilized in the European, Pacific, African and Middle Eastern theaters.

It had to follow in the shadow of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, one of the greatest bombers of World War II. But it wasn't without its problems, its flying characteristics were not as good as the B-17. They made the following improvements:

  • Longer range
  • Larger munitions load
  • Tricycle style landing gear
  • Higher top airspeed
  • More efficient wing design
  • Better flight performance characteristics

The B-24 also had a much higher rate of accidents than its predecessor, the Boeing B-17.  This gave the B-24 a reputation as the widow maker.

With the evolution of formation flying the B-24 Bomber losses dramatically decreased and along with the support of long-range escort fighters, such as the P-51 Mustang. The B-24 Liberators are believed to have dropped well over 630,000 tons of bombs, while several thousand enemy aircraft fell to their guns.
