B-24 production was 19,000 built if you lined them up nose to tail, they would have extended 245 miles! By 1944 the USAAF had 80,000 aircraft and 2,600,000 men that's two million six hundred thousand men. This doesn't count aircraft that could have been built from spare parts.


Did you know that during WWII 300,000 workers were killed or injured producing all the weapons and supplies needed. Production went on 24/7 do you know items made during WWII like clothes and
other items are still available brand new never issued.
Hundreds of thousands of items needed to build the B-24 were produced by both large and small companies across America, uniforms, flight suites
and other equipment were manufactured some of these items are still available decades after WWII


As a kid growing up in 1950s Los Angeles, Ca. I remember going to the Army/Navy War Surplus Store and seeing real WWII, GI issue items, that store even had the same smell that I would later recall in those US Army supply sections, during the Vietnam War.
