Bombers and Fighters Utilized in War

For this activity, explore bombers and fighters utilized in World War II and in contemporary wars of the Middle East starting Operations Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. Use information from a credible source and use your new knowledge gained from your course textbook readings to compare and contrast bombers and fighters used during these past and present wars (WWII vs. Operations Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm). Using one of the news websites from the provided list, search for a current news story/event that demonstrates a chosen area of aviation over time for this assignment. Your current news selection must be within the last 180 days. Examine the news story or event, reflect, and consider all aspects and viewpoints the author provides. In your initial post (must be 150 words), show a clear connection between the news story/event and the course materials. If there is no connection to course materials, you will lose 40 points. State the title of the news story and include the link so that others can access the story. You may apply any lens you wish to use when constructing this assignment: historic, scientific, technological, engineering, or math. Summarize the story and explain the cause and effect relationships for your chosen area (lens) of aviation for this assignment.

In this module, we will cover World War II and the contributions of aircraft to the war effort. In our earlier exploration of World War I, aircraft was in its beginning stages of development and did not make an overwhelming impact on the outcome of the war. World War II was quite different as there had been dramatic improvement made in the aircraft industry; older models redesigned, new models engineered; and in addition, there more available trained pilots from the air competitions, air mail service, and flying circuses that had been taking place in the post WWI years.

Germany, in order to expand, had been producing planes and pilots secretly for years. When they felt the time was right began to conquer neighboring countries around them to enlarge their borders to pre-WWI days. Eventually, they had Britain in their sights and began to attack them from the air.

Female ground crews and pilots were trained in many countries as men were involved directly with the war effort and fighting. Women in the US became an integral part of delivering planes, working with training operations (such as towing targets for pilots to practice on, becoming flight instructors and more). The opportunities did not end there, African American men were recruited to the Tuskegee and Walterboro Air Bases, even though their units were kept segregated from the those of the Caucasian flyers.

Some of the improvements and new inventions included; rotary wing aircraft, jet propulsion, rockets, and missiles. Radar was improved and used as a defensive measure. There is no denying the impact of aviation in both the European and Pacific theaters of war.
