      The B-24 had the highest production of any bomber in World War II. By the end of the war, over 18,000 of these bombers had been produced. This is very amazing, seeing as the proto-type first flew in December of 1941. The plane was heavily used in Europe along with the B-17 in daylight raids on the continent. It was also heavily used in the Pacific because of its ability to fly long ranges.
