Consolidated B-24 (LB-30) Liberator

The Consolidated Aircraft Corporation, with substantial help from the Ford Motor Company, produced over 18,000 B-24 Liberator heavy bombers for the U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II. The ubiquitous B-24 was seen in every theatre of the war, and because of it’s long range (second only to the Boeing B-29 Superfortress) served as a long range bomber, maritime patrol aircraft, cargo plane (C-87 Liberator Express) and anti-submarine aircraft.

This photo was taken by me at the Aviation Nation airshow at Nellis Air Force Base on November 11, 2007.
