    Haven't seen one of these fly yet, what a machine. The British response to seeing these land in the Uk "you guys better go home with these trucks you'll never survive" still sends tingles down my spine. The American's knew these things had potential, but what workhorses they were. The B-24 being the equivalent bomber in my personal opinion. Just got on with the job, returned as many of it's crew as it could.
    Igor Sikorsky, what a designer.

    Igor Sikorsky was better known for his helicopter designs although he did design some flying boats as well. Alexander Kartveli designed the P-47.
