Training at Randolph FieldTraining at Randolph Field
Training at Randolph Field

Training at Randolph Field, Texas: Phone system connects teacher and pupil. A complete telephone system connecting A.C. instructor in the front cockpit and his Flying Cadet student pilot in the rear cockpit, a distance of 3 ft., is used at Randolph Field, Texas giant training field. Telephone dial is the only part that's missing…and of course, no "busy signals". Two former Minneapolis, Minn. Men demonstrate the unit. Lt. Fred E. Hild, front cockpit, former All American Football Star of Coe College, and now a flying instructor for Uncle Sam, phones his pupil, F/C D. E. Crawford. The receivers are built right into the helmet in order to facilitate hearing above the roar of the planes' engine. (12016 A.C.)

Lockheed Ventura Bomber

Lockheed "Ventura" Bomber, Student in training plane "attacks" bomber with movie camera gun. He must "shoot" him down. Simulating a fighter attack. Latest wrinkle in aerial gunnery training at Tyndall Field is practice firing at actual planes with the movie camera gun. Here a training plane "attacks" a Lockheed "Ventura" bomber. The student in the top turret must "shoot" him down with a camera gun mounted in the turret. When crosshairs on the film intersect on the plane, a hit is scored. This is good practice for tracking a swiftly moving target but it does not require the gunner to "lead" his target. (23075 A.C.)
