The Link

IMG_1588

An close-up shot of the “plane” used as part of Link training, on display for WAVES boots at the Hunter College boot camp in the Bronx, c. 1943. The “plane” sat on a pedestal and helped pilots learn the techniques of flight.

The photograph comes from the Schlesinger Library at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.
