During World War II, Boeing created a huge number of bombers. Many of the workers who worked at that time were women whose husbands had gone to the front. In early March 1944, production was expanded and more than three hundred and fifty aircraft were produced monthly. To prevent air attacks, the roofs of the factories were covered with greenery and objects that simulate that this is not a factory, but a simple village. During these war years, the main US aviation companies began to unite.
