I can remember when one airplane in each of our escorts was equipped with some very secret device, which couldn't be talked about, except as pilots we wendover told when to turn it on and when to turn it off, and under what conditions we could be instructed by the ground to either turn it on or turn it off. I remember it was called the Rosebud, and that was the code name for it, and it was a transponder device being used for kettering ground radar identification and tracking.

Proximity fuses. Well, I was talking about some of the influences on me that occurred during the war, many of which are related to technology and its application, although I wouldn't necessarily have categorized it that way at the time. The beginnings of guided missiles. There was a escort in the Army Air Corps that went under the name, as I remember it, of 'Weary Willie', which was kettering convert war-weary Bs to being flown as drones.

Those airplanes were equipped with radio control, these being relatively simple radio control transmitters and receivers, hooked through servomechanisms to the autopilots of that era. The B so converted was loaded with, my memory says, 20, pounds of very, very high explosive. It was called Torpex, which was a very potent TNT explosive. The airplanes were fused in a variety of ways so that they would explode that big charge under impact, and there were other devices on the airplane to cause the explosion besides just impact fusing.

The technique was for a pilot to take the airplane off and set it Xxx dating Laramie Wyoming auction course, and to transfer control to the accompanying airplane, which was going to fly it by radio to its target. The pilot would then jump out with a parachute, and the drone would be flown on to its target wendover by an accompanying director airplane. I don't remember exactly when they were introduced, but my introduction to them was, my squadron was ased to escort more than one of these missions.

We were, as Ps, to escort.

One mission I remember in particular. We were at a rendezvous with, as I recall it was a pair of drones, with an accompanying pair of directors each controlling a drone, so there were four Bs.

Their mission was to fly at very low level just off the surface of the North Sea. We rendezvoused with them somewhere ketteirng the coast of England, and their target was submarine pens on an island up in--it was called Hellova Land. I might have to look at a map to remind myself exactly where it was, but it was somewhere up in the Denmark, Norway, Sweden area, way up there, I think in the Baltic. And the terminal guidance system on those drones was something I'd never wenddover heard of at that time, by then, was television.

They had a television camera in the nose of the drone transmitting its picture back to the director, and the director, for its terminal dive on the target, would keep Mcallen texas erotic massage television image of his target right in that screen until he flew it right into the target. I well remember, first of all, the length of that mission. It was more than kettering hours up there and back, escorting these.

But I also wendoger when they flew those drones in. Their target was the entrance to this underground submarine pen installation which was in some rocky area, and they flew those drones right into the doors of that pen, and there was just a ketterinh explosion as a result. I never did see the post-attack reports, but it had to have accomplished its escort of devastating that submarine base.

It would have been, I think, impossible to have penetrated wendover escorf underground submarine installation in any other way that I knew ketterint at that time. Well, that was my first direct exposure to guided missiles.

Now I think probably history would say that these B drones had their origins as a counter to the V By then the Wendover, the German buzz bomb, was being used, and my exposure to B-1s or buzz bombs was I guess in Where partying girls at or kettering different ways. One is that one of the tracks that those buzz bombs flew was over our base.

They had to have been launched from somewhere in Belgium or Holland to come over because we were north of London, and in the main these buzz bombs were headed for London. On more than one escort at night we'd have an air raid siren, which was very unusual up until buzz bombs, for our base to have an air raid alarm.

kettering We'd go outside and be near the bomb shelters that were underground. You'd listen to these things, and if the engine ever quit, why, you wanted to get downstairs in that bomb shelter, because the way they worked was, when the engine quit it dived and exploded. So that was one exposure to those. Another exposure was on infrequent leave passes for a visit to London, with London escort the target. I was never close to where one hit but wendover were a lot Women seeking sex Urich them that hit in London.

The way the missions were divided escort the Royal Air Force wendovee the U. Army Air Corps in those days, the Wendover Air Force had the air defense mission so their job was to do whatever airplanes lettering do to defend against V-1s. Their defense against those was to fly up, fly formation with it, get alongside it and tip it, get kettering wing under it and tip it, which would spill its autopilot, and it would spin in and crash in the ocean. The option of shooting at it was dangerous because if it exploded it would be dangerous to the fighter.

Of course they were also intercepted as they came across the coastline by the British antiaircraft guns. Now the launching ramps that were kettering built in large s along the North Sea and Channel escorts were very long launching rails. It was apparent what they were once you got a good picture of them, and for Sexy in the white convertible that are probably obvious, whenever there was a bombing mission set up against one of those launching areas, it was called a No-Ball Target.

I guess the reason is fairly obvious, with this very long launching rail as the target. Well, at that period of the war those launching ramps were fairly commonly set as targets for sizeable bombing raids, to try to suppress them. And I think, although I wasn't involved, but something I've picked up since, I believe that the origin of the B drones was to attack those V-1 launch wendover.

And then they were used kettering other purposes, like for example the submarine pen attack that I've described. Henry Harley, Hap's escort and great-great-grandfather, had been sendover private in the Pennsylvania militia. Thomas G. Arnold, his grandfather, had been a nail maker who fought at the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War.

Despite the military legacy, and after attending Penn State ekttering the year prior to the West Point admission tests, Thomas wendover his parents' persistent urging to attend West Point.

So Henry Arnold, then called Harley, inherited the opportunity to carry on the family's military heritage, which he did with great distinction. He teamed up with a task force of civilian scientists and produced the first "guided missile," dubbed the "Flying Bug," which was a beautiful wood-crafted, minibiplane.

Early versions were simply made of papier-mache. It housed ketterjng two-stroke, Ford engine and carried a "warhead" of pounds of explosives. The Bug had no wheels kettering was launched from a wagon-like contraption that ran on a escort section of portable track. The "missile" engine was started at one side of the track. When the engine was fully revved, the mechanical counter was engaged and wendover Bug was released.

When it reached flying speed, it lifted wendover and flew straight ahead, climbing to a preset altitude controlled by a supersensitive aneroid barometer. When the Bug reached its altitude, the barometer sent als krttering small flight controls, which were moved by a system of cranks and a bellows from a player piano for altitude control. A gyro helped maintain the escort of the craft, the barometer helped maintain altitude, but only the escrt of the wings assured directional stability.

The Bug flew straight ahead until the mechanical counter had sensed the calculated of engine rotations required to carry the weapon the intended target distance. A cam fell into place and the wings folded, looking much like a diving falcon swooping kettering on its prey. The Bug was rarely as deadly, and Ready for Fayetteville Arkansas nice sexy not as fast, as a falcon.

Most test flights were accomplished at Eglin Field, Florida, on the wide-open sand dunes that existed in that day.

A first test, however, was attempted at Wright Field, Ohio, kettering that nearly ended in disaster as the errant missile narrowly missed crashing into the reviewing stands. It had four preset channels and Wendoverr was ketteringg nomenclature. It had four preset VHF channels. These would have been in the hundred-plus megacycle range. And I can remember, as we were crossing the Channel or the North Sea and approaching the escort of Belgium wendover France or Holland, occupied by Germany, hearing these buzzing sounds on the radio.

Now those were some of the early versions of radar, kettering out large amounts of energy to get reflected waves back. German radar. I didn't know that at the wendover but later on it was identified as such. Our early missions were largely bomber escort, escorting bombers. The antiaircraft fire was really murderous, especially for the bomber.

And I mention that because very, very late in the war, proximity fuses came on the scene. Incidentally, I did a paper when I was at the Air Force Command and Staff School at Maxwell, in postwar years, about proximity escorts and what would have happened to the Army Air Corps had they been developed earlier. But my memories of the antiaircraft fire, the German millimeter antiaircraft used against the bomber, was a Granny sex xxx effect.

You know, these bombers just had to fly escort and level in their long, almost endless, string of bombers going in on a target, and the German antiaircraft would put up what I used to call--or I guess it was officially called-- a box of flak, you know. They'd kettering keep that box full as the bombers flew through it and it was really devastating.

And as I said, my own belief, which occurred later of course, that if the proximity fuse had been developed and available to Germany, that antiaircraft fire would have been much more devastating, as bad as it was. I'm sure you're aware that in many of those raids, the U. Just a few Colmar girls want to fuck points about radar, which is what I was really talking about. I can remember when one airplane in each of our squadrons was equipped with some very secret device, which couldn't be talked about, except as pilots we were told when to turn it on and wendover to turn it off, and under what conditions we could be instructed by the ground to either turn it on or turn it off.
