Training Pilots

IMG_1593

Aviation week continues with this c. 1944 photograph of a Navy WAVE working the headsets on the Link flight simulation unit. She’ll use the microphone to help direct the pilot trainee and let him know if he is flying correctly or has “crashed.”

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