A phenomenon was born: War went to the skies and the American workforce was changed as well. This month’s Western Museum of Flight (WMoF) Celebrity Speaker is author Dana Parker who chronicled this phenomenon with “Building Victory: Aircraft Manufacturing in the Los Angeles Area in World War II” World War II was the greatest airborne clash of arms in history. America's aircraft manufacturers built a phenomenal 300,000 planes, a feat that most (including the German high command) thought impossible. They manufactured more aircraft in one year than had been produced in all the pre-war years since the Wright brothers invented the airplane. Los Angeles was the epicenter: headquarters for Douglas Aircraft, Hughes, Lockheed, North American Aviation, Northrop and Vultee plus hundreds of subcontractors. The kink in the armor? Experienced, established aircraft workers either enlisted or were drafted. Thus manufacturers had huge orders and few experienced employees. Aerospace responded by hiring women, students, disabled people and others who might not otherwise have been considered for production positions. Housewives and others with little mechanical experience rolled up their sleeves, learned fast, and brought forth an industrial achievement that ranks among America's greatest accomplishments. WMoF Members are free; non-members are $5, which also includes access to WMoF museum exhibits. Free parking. Support YOUR community’s unique museum and place in history: WMoF Annual Memberships (wmof.com/newmem.htm) always available. The annual membership – individual, family or business - gives you one-year unlimited FREE admission to Celebrity Lectures, Quarterly Newsletter and access to the research library (Includes Membership Card), access to Special Events and will be listed in Annual publications.
