There were more B-24's built than any other US heavy bomber during the war and were used more widely through out all the theatres of combat during WWII than any of the others.
What you say is quite true, Berto. The B-24 was a truly excellent aircraft. Over the years, I've talked to several pilots who flew it during World War II and their only real complaint with it was that it was a beast to fly compared to the B-17.
