    Firefighters hose down a fire at the North American Aviation "B" Plant in Dallas. In 1948 - 1949, Chance Vought relocated its operations from Stratford, Connecticut, to Dallas, Texas, moving into the wartime North American "B" Plant. The move was the largest industrial relocation to date, involving the transfer of over 13,000 tons of equipment and 1,300 employees over the course of 14 months.
