Film clip shows workers surrounding a completed B-29 bomber parked on ramp of what appears to be the Boeing plant on Sea Island, Canada. Film clip reads:"Canada Builds B-29s for U.S." (Note: Boeing of Canada, headquartered at Vancouver, B.C., built a huge manufacturing factory on Sea Island to build aircraft for the war effort. In 1944 Boeing began to manufacture the mid-sections of B-29 fuselages there, including bomb bays for the bomber. These sections were then trucked to Renton, Washington where they were incorporated into final assembled aircraft. However, this clip shows a fully assembled B-29 that may have been flown here for something like worker morale purposes.)
