The USAAF Map

Via Clive Moore I have an extract of the navigation map used by pilots during the war on which the numbers are marked. USAAF chart

I’d love to get a copy of this map for myself to frame – if anyone sees it in a military map sale, I’d be grateful to know.

This is also worth a look as it shows that the airfields here also had similar signs.

USAAF Chart Ireland 1As it happens I knew about the sign on the airfield in Collinstown as a picture of the airfield is hanging in Terminal 2 in Dublin Airport with the sign still painted on what I think is now Hangar 1 or Hangar 2. Dublin Airport have also had it on their Facebook website:

    Hi Keith,

    I don’t have it. The section above was sent to me by someone who bought it in a military auction. My guess is it occasionally turns up in map auctions. I am also going to see if a copy of it can be obtained from military archives in the US. I just haven’t had time to do so yet.

    regards
