NOTE: The magazine this series was published in has been out of print for many years and paper copies are no longer available through the Government Printing Office. This electronic version has been placed on the Naval Historical Center's home page because it is an excellent reference source for information about the Naval Aviation history. As an electronic document, there is a compromise between picture quality and the capability of the optical-character-reader software to correctly identify the text in the monograph, which results in the picture quality being less than optimum.

These files are saved and made available to you in Adobe's "Portable Document Format" (.pdf) which preserves formatting and greatly compresses their size for quicker downloading. You will need the Acrobat Reader, downloadable free from Adobe, to view them.
