Aircraft Identification


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I remember when I was in the first or second grade at school we had black rubber airplanes to play with.  I do not know for sure but always suspected they were war surplus models for identification purposes.  That was my suspicions when I got older.  Found some!

When I joined the Ground Observer Corps (Call sign Juliet  Mike One Four Black on a dedicated land line) in 1858-1958 we were given  book of silhouettes with the description of each plane on a the back of each plane, one plane to a page.  Fifty planes to a book, three books.  When I left they took the books back.

 

We were volunteers looking for planes from every country you could imagine.  Going to save our country from Godless Communism.  I'm beginning to think we failed.

They could publish the silhouettes in 1858?
