Synopsis: An industrial miracle took place at the Fairfax Airport, on the shores of the Missouri River, between 1941 and 1945. A massive factory was quickly built and a large modification center was soon added. At its peak, over 24,000 greater Kansas City-area residents were employed by North American Aviation, Inc. Their goal was to build as many twin-engine B-25 Mitchell medium bombers for wartime service as possible. Their success was the construction of an unprecedented 6,608 aircraft. The B-25 Mitchell served with distinction in every theater of World War II, and significant numbers of them were provided to Allied nations. Many B-25s have been preserved, and some of them remain airworthy today. They can be seen on static display or in flight at air shows all across America.

About the Author: John Fredrickson retired as a senior manager of the Boeing Company in 2011 after 36 years of service. He has 21 years combined reserve and active-duty service with the US Air Force and is a Vietnam War veteran. John Roper is an entrepreneur and a licensed pilot with over 4,000 hours of flying time. He is a certified flight instructor, a certified aircraft mechanic, holds multiple degrees in engineering and aviation management, and is the vice president of the National Airline History Museum at the Kansas City Downtown Airport, less a mile from the original Fairfax assembly plant.
