Ques­tions on the June 2017 Is­sue

Flight Journal - - EDITORIAL - Ge­orge, via e-mail

On page 47 in the June 2017 is­sue, I noted four pi­lots look­ing at a to­po­graphic map that has been changed into an ac­tual scale model of it. The ques­tion came to me that army com­man­ders had

these and prob­a­bly ev­ery air­craft car­rier had them. Who made them and were they mass-pro­duced in some way? There must be a story here.

The other ques­tion I have is on page 48. I see men sit­ting on top of the 5-inch guns. Be­tween them is mounted a gun sight. Was this aimed from in­side the gun, or was it a sec­ondary sight in case their nor­mal way of aim­ing the gun should stop work­ing?

Ge­orge, good ques­tions. Un­for­tu­nately, we can’t give de­fin­i­tive an­swers. How about it, read­ers? Any­one have in­for­ma­tion on this?—BD
