Just goes to show what can be done when the will and motivation are there to accomplish an important task...and perhaps a lesson there for us as well.

A few more tidbits on that facilty --- it was responsible for building the PV-1 Ventura and the P-38 Lightning, among other aircraft including the B-17 Flying Fortress which was built under a war time licensing agreement with Boeing. The comparatively small portion of the facility that remains now includes the legendary "Skunk Works" responsible for the the U-2, SR-71 and today's F-22 Raptor.

As an FYI: That facility is also the one that built the Constellation...generally regarded in aviation circles as one of the most beautiful and elegant airplanes ever built.
