B-24 Liberator: The Second World War Bomber designed to replace the Flying Fortress

At the start of 1939, the United States Army Air Corps wanted more of its favourite aircraft, the B-17 Flying Fortress. Consolidated took one look at the B-17 and decided they could do better. They responded with a proposal for a new aircraft which could fly faster, further, higher, and carry more bombs.

In this video, Emily Charles walks us through the history and technical aspects of the iconic B-24 Liberator.

IWM Duxford Curator Craig Murray takes a look at the Dowding System and explains how it turned the battle decisively in Britain's favour.
