The B-24 Liberator heavy bomber is often compared to the B-17 Flying Fortress. The B-24 was a more modern design with a higher top speed, greater range and a higher bomb load. Unfortunately she had a tendency to catch fire and sustain more damage during combat than the B-17. Even though her reputaions may not have been up to the B-17 she still carried out many important missions because of her long range and load capabilities.
