Preparing to Do Battle at 35,000 Feet

Recognition models – also called “spotter models” were used by the Air Force during World War II to help airmen learn the difference between friends and foe while in flight.  Preparing to Do Battle at 35,000 Feet is part one of the story of these small models and their big role in the Allies’ victory.
