 Ok guys, something  different to to Browse Through  other than current non modelling matters .. this sent to me today from BobF

There are 79 pages of photos with many blocked out. In this group is a photo of the plans for the Norden bombsight, that had been top secret. The plans show the complexity of the aircraft functions the bombsight was able to control. It actually took over the flying of the aircraft. The bombsight was one of the first uses of a computer and the company building them became IBM.

The fact that, in just a few years, we were able to manufacture this vast array of weapons and train people in their use. It is astounding what we were able to accomplish. It also gives us a first hand account at what it took for us to be able to continue our freedoms, today, and gives us a look at the "greatest generation" in action.




Great photos. Thank you for sharing.
