The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was an American heavy bomber, designed and largely built by the Consolidated Aircraft Company, San Diego, California. It was produced in greater numbers than any other American combat aircraft of World War II, and still holds the record as the most produced American military or naval aircraft. The B-24 Liberator was used by several Allied air forces and navies, and by every branch of the American armed forces during the war, attaining a distinguished war record with its operations in the Western European, Pacific, Mediterranean and China-Burma-India Theaters. Between 1940 and 1945 a total of 18,482 B-24's were built.Realistic panel lines

Often compared with the better-known B-17, the B-24 was a more modern design with a higher top speed, greater range and heavier bomb load. However, it was also more difficult to fly, with heavy control forces and poor formation-flying characteristics. Popular opinion among aircrews and general's staffs tended to favor the B-17s rugged qualities above all other considerations in the European Theater.
