Consolidated B-24D Liberator (Winter 2013)

on

Good morning. I like to take photos and sometimes write a short blog. It is a good way to learn more about places I visited. Here, in this brief blog, I would like to share my photos and some facts which I found out about the Consolidated B-24D Liberator, famous American bomber aircraft from World War II.

The Consolidated B-24D Liberator first flight took place in December of 1939. The United States was not at war, but Europe was already burning. During next five years more than 18,000 different variants of B-24 were build. The bomber was present on almost every single major front of the World War II in the role of heavy bomber, antisubmarine platform, and maritime patrol aircraft.

Here is the link to the B-24 info on the museum’s website and the additional one from the Wikipedia.
