Aviation Mech

Aviation Mech, Hydraulics School, Chicago

Raymond Dalton Kelly, AMM1c, arrives from the South Pacific for a course in Advanced Hydraulics at Technical Training Center, 87th at Anthony Avenue, Chicago. He's been out there and has helped to prepare planes for action against the enemy. So he knows that victory over enemy planes and craft depends as much on his efficiency as an aviation mech as it does on the skill of the pilot, accuracy of the plane's gunner or air bomber. Kelly's CO knew that he was qualified, sent him to bring back the latest dope. (Naval Aviation News, August 1944.)
