    Aka AF Plant #4.  Built early in WWII to build B-24's far from the coast and possible Japanese invasion.  Various companies operated the plant (I think the USAF 'owns' the building); Consolidated, Convair, General Dynamics, then Lockheed Martin took over.

    They built the B-24, PB4Y (Navy B-24), B-36, B-58, F-111 and F-16 in the mile long main assembly building.
