With this aircraft, you can get to enjoy what was once the height of modernity. It's a highly efficient aircraft, using the high aspect ratio Davis wing to make sure it flies with a very particular style.
It was known for its high speed even at cruising ratio, and its ability to carry large payloads over a long-range distance. It's part of what makes the Consolidated B-24 Liberator such a fun aircraft to fly: it can take in huge distances without feeling sluggish or slow.
This aircraft played a major role in creating an Allied victory in the Second World War. Used by the Allied air forces and navies, it took part in every theatre of battle during the war. It was also a key part of the Western European bombing runs which helped to turn the tide of war and ensure an Allied victory was possible.
Indeed, it even played a key role in the major bombing runs that took part in Japan. By the end of the Second World War, the Consolidated B-24 Liberator was beginning to become quite outdated thanks to new aviation developments.
However, it was down to the studious work on the B-24 which ensured such developments were even possible. For aviation fans and historians, hopping into the cockpit of an aircraft which paved the way for so much will be hugely enjoyable.
