Desk Duties


In the Link trainer, the instructor sits at a desk while the “pilot” goes into a flight simulator. In this photo from 1944, Hannah Barnes and Elizabeth Ripley practice the new desk techniques when using the new machine for celestial navigation during their 10-week training at NAS Seattle.

The photo comes from the National Archives.
