The Norden Bombsight: Facts and Fallacies

April 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This is the story of the “legendary” Norden bombsight. It was a technologically wonder in its day, but its day was in the late 1920s and ’30s.   When put to the test in World War II, it didn’t live up to its hype.  Yet the Army Airforce sang its praises as a wonder weapon and bombardiers were required to take an oath during their training stating that they would defend its secret with their own life.  Find out why as we investigate this icon of aviation history.

Presenters: Sid Burks & Steve Koch
