WILLOW RUN FROM THE AIR: The sprawling giant of American war plants, Willow Run now seems by comparison a quiet, empty place, as more than 1,000 workers prepare her for her peacetime role of automobile production. In this, one of the first aerial shots of the plant to be printed, Willow Run's hugeness is made graphic. In the background is the airfield where completed B-24s took off on their first step to battle. The picture was taken at an altitude of 800 feets, with the camera pointing east.

BEAUTY TREATMENT: The first of many paint jobs will be applied at the spray booth, shown above. Tracks will carry the bodies slowly through the booth, then lead into the drying chamber, or bake oven, which stands in the background. A workman here checks the tracks to make sure they're ready for the job that lies ahead.
