Michigan is the Home of "Willow Run", Henry Fords B-24 Liberator Factory.

The B-24 Liberator was built in a factory called Willow Run in Detroit Michigan.  The factory was built by Henry Ford and designed by Charles Sorensen.  The Willow Run factory was named willow run because is it was built on the willow run creek.  This is interesting because the last person to live on the Willow Run property was Warren Benjamin Kidder.  I have spoken to Ben, personally, and he is one of the nicest people that anyone could ever meet.  Ben wrote a book called Willow Run, Colossus of Industry, a book about the production of the B-24 liberator, military bomber.  When the factory was in full production it produced a B-24 liberator every 56 minutes.  This factory is one of Henry Ford 's greatest achievements.  You can read more about this fantastic, very well written book by clicking here

Patterson Aircraft Company

This exhibit shows the Patterson Aircraft Company in 1980.  This is the place that I worked in the last part of the 70's and the first part of the 80's.  This was the best job that I have ever had and one of the best crews that I have ever worked with.  C. Jeff Dyrek, webmaster.
