During WW II Lockheed
(unbelievable 1940s pictures). This is a version of special
effects during the 1940's. I have never seen these pictures
or knew that we had gone this far to protect ourselves. During
World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the
Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a possible
Japanese air attack. They covered it with camouflage netting
to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air.
The person I received
this from said she got back an interesting story about someone's
mother who worked at Lockheed, and she as a younger child,
remembers all this. And to this day, it is the first pictures
of it she's seen.
Another person who lived
in the area talked about as being a boy, watching it all
be set up like a movie studio production. They had fake houses,
trees, etc. and moved parked cars around so it looked like
a residential area from the skies overhead.
Note... I lived
in North Long Beach during World War II, I was 13 years old.
(1940) The Long Beach airport was near Lakewood, CA. There
was a large Boeing Plant there. If you would drive down Carson
St. going south you could drive under the camouflage netting. Ed
Note... I am 85 and had
much of my pilot training in Calif. I have been under this
net and have seen it from the air. During preflight training
I rode a bus under the net and was very surprised as I didn't
know it was there. It was strong enough to walk on and they
hired people to ride bicycles and move around as if they
lived there to make it look authentic. Warren Holmgreen Jr
