Some Awesome WWII Plane Factory Pictures- High Quality

I figured some of you WWII buffs may like these pictures. Pretty damn cool looking. This is the article, not written by me of course.




WWII Airplane Factories - Kodachrome 4x5 Pictures

Back in the mid '70s when I was working at Hellers Camera in Bethesda Md. I had a reference book with a color photo of the battleship Pennsylvania in an advanced base sectional dock, somewhere in the Pacific in about 1944. The quality of the photo made it clear that it was shot with a large format camera, which puzzled me since I did not think Kodachrome (the only modern color film of the time in the US) was available in sheet films. A guy I worked with was an old Kodak hand (and WWII vet, a radioman in Europe) and told me that they did have sheet Kodachrome, and that there was only one machine to process the film, located in Rochester. The exposed film was sent there for processing.
And note the almost complete lack of basic safety equipment. I saw only one pair of safety glasses, and only a few of the workers were wearing gloves. Working without gloves around sheet metal is an injury waiting to happen.

Notice most of the woman had lip stick and nail polish on. WWII could not have been won without the woman of America stepping into men's shoes to build the equipment needed to defeat the axis powers.

Fascinating! Some of these images are 70 years old and look as fresh as ever. If someone had told any of the subjects in thesephotos that we'd have such a clear look at them in the year 2012.

Man, the color high quality photos make this era seem real and I can identify more with what my parents and grandparents remember from the past. I've seen so many grainy black and white photos that subconciously I've started to imagine the entire past as black and white.

The WWII era makes a strong case that we absolutely can become a manufacturing country again. People argue that our workforce no longer has the skill to manufacture. Even if that was true, WWII is evidence that we are a people that can learn the requisite skills quickly. Of course, the wage issue is another thing altogether.

Manufacturing isn't especially difficult. The skills to be an assembler may be learned rather quickly.

Manufacturing is no longer people running a riveter. It's high-tech robots and production machinery popping out 700 widgets an hour.

That generation of people is the greatest this country has ever seen or will ever see. Millions of people, banding together for one cause. The women and children working their asses off to make sure their Dad's, Husbands and Brother's had what they needed to come home.
We lose almost a thousand a day...

Here's a little snippet.

In my line of work, I meet famous people on occasion. I've met Bart Starr, Mike Ditka, last weekend I escorted Ron White and shot the shit with him for a while.
Nice people and all but I could give a shit less..

A few months back, I went to a VFW meeting with my father, (a Vietnam vet) and I met a little old man that was a ball turret gunner on the B-17's during the great war. I was star-struck. Instantly I knew this man had bigger balls then anyone I've ever met in my life. I shook his hand, listened to every word he said and thanked him for everything he did for us. Truly a great man. He served his first tour and got all of his missions in, then he went back and did it again a year later. The odds of him standing in front of me at that time was something like 1 - 5,000.
