The long hanger at Willow Run, Michigan has a 90 degree turn so that Henry Ford did not have to pay taxes in the next county.



That short end is being saved and restored as a museum. The big hanger doors are still operational after all those years.



This is one of the best and most informative clips about an American accomplishment. Congratulations to the Ford Motor Company during WWII.



A Ford Airplane - AMAZING
This was 6 months BEFORE Pearl Harbor! Henry Ford was determined that he could mass produce bombers just as he had done with cars, so he built the Willow Run assembly plant in Michigan and proved it. It was the world's largest building under one roof at the time.This film will absolutely blow you away - one B-24 every? 55 minutes. . . and Ford had their own pilots to test them. and they had no recalls.


ADOLF HITLER HAD NO IDEA THE U.S. WAS CAPABLE OF THIS KIND OF THING.

Ouir Henry was a smart cookie, notice all the aircraft are the one color. Just as with the first car, any color you like as long as it is the same.
