Likes Tar­get Drones

Flight Journal - - AIRDROP -

That was a nice ar­ti­cle about the PQ-14/TD2C-1 in the lat­est is­sue of Flight Jour­nal (Oc­to­ber 2018). At­tached is a photo of Navy TD2C-1 drones be­ing off­loaded in Apra Har­bor, Guam, in July 1945. They were used as tar­get drones for B-29 gun­ners and Navy fight­ers. Some were used for “at­tacks” on ships to give the crew some real­is­tic gun­nery prac­tice.
