The island of Ie Shima was a fighter support base for escorting the B-29's as they flew over Japan from Saipan and Tinian Islands.  Ie Shima was also used as an emergency landing base for crippled B-29's that were either damaged or low on fuel as they returned from their bombing missions over the main island of Japan.  This is one of those B-29 Superfortresses.

Willow Run

The exciting story of  building the B-24 Liberator
Warren Benjamin Kidder (Ben) was the last man to live on the Willow Run property before his house was torn down for the factory construction.  He has done a tremendous amount of research on building the Willow Run Plant and the B-24 Liberator.  The book is one of the best that I have ever read and you can see a large exhibit here with lots of great photos of the B-24 Liberator under construction plant in World War 2.  Exhibit Added Feb 2000
11 New Pages and a Major Exhibit Upgrade July 2007
