More > Liberator Express, C-109 fuel tanker models. The B-24 was used in World War II by several Allied air forces and navies, and by every branch of the American armed forces during the war, attaining a distinguished war record with its operations in the Western European, Pacific, Mediterranean, and CBI Theaters. The B-24 provided excellent service in a variety of roles thanks to its large payload and long range. The B-24's most costly mission was the low-level strike against the Ploesti oil fields, in Romania on 1 August 1943, which turned into a disaster because the defense was underestimated and fully alerted while the attackers were disorganized. The B-24 ended World War II as the most produced heavy bomber in history. 392 photos, 1 color cutaway, 3 B&W cutaways, 1 map.< Less
