Fords Willow Run Plant - Great Story

This is a WW2 propaganda film (aimed at the homefront). But the engineering stuff is pretty interesting. (And note the neckties.)
B-24 LIBERATOR - AMAZING STORY
 
The Genius of Henry Ford. This was BEFORE Pearl Harbor !!!  Ford's B-24 Bomber Plant at Willow Run, MI.
 
Henry Ford was determined that he could mass produce bombers just as he had done with cars.
 
He built the Willow Run assembly plant and proved it. It was the world's largest building under one roof.
Even then FORD HAD A BETTER IDEA!
This film will absolutely blow you away - one B-24 every 55 minutes.
