The World War Two Consolidated B24 Liberator Heavy Bomber is often overshadowed in the history books by the B-17 Flying Fortress but the B-24 Liberator was built in greater numbers, The first flight of a B-24 Liberater was in December 1939, In total 18,500 Liberators were built by Consolidated Aircraft Corperation and their licensed partners, Douglas, Ford and North America Aviation between 1940 and 1945. RAF Bomber command took 1,900 B-24s and became the number one strategic bomber in the far east. RAF Costal Command also used B24 Liberators in an anti submarine role in an effort to protect the North Atlantic convoys. Prime Minister Winston Churchill used a B-24 Liberator as his personal Aircraft during the war. The RAF still used Liberators until December 1968 when they were sold to the Indian Air Force.
