World at war captured in aerial photographic archive

World at war captured in aerial photographic archive

A reminder of the sterling work done by reconnaissance pilots during the Second World War, in almost unimaginable conditions fraught with peril and discomfort. The contribution to the war effort by these chaps can never be underestimated and the debt of gratitude owed to them is great. It is also an interesting window into the early years of spy planes, which have since reached their peak with the likes of the English Electric Canberra, and Lockheeds U-2 and SR71.
