October 1942. The Consolidated Aircraft Corp. plant in Fort Worth, Texas. "Production. Halfway down the final line of a Western aircraft plant at which B-24 bombers and C-87 transports are made. This new transport, an adaptation of the B-24 bomber, is known as the C-87 and carries one of the greatest human or cargo loads of any plane now in mass production. It is built in a plant equipped with one of the best air conditioning and fluorescent lighting systems in the country." Photo by Howard Hollem for the Office of War Information.
