Yep, and what they did was not pretty, either.They were pretty to watch until you realised they were floating right through your wing.
I have read that this was also applied to P-51's, because Maytag made parts for the V-1670.Their name for them was "Maytag Messerschmitts"
Hate to quibble, but was my statement that Patton was Instrumental wrong? At the time of the Louisiana Maneuvers Patton was a Major General and was involved in getting Mr Piper and his Cubs invited. This simple fact was INSTRUMENTAL in getting a leap forward in producing the huge numbers of grasshoppers that had such an impact on artillery spotting. Read Ken Wakefield's "Fighting Grasshoppers" Amazon product or "L-Birds" Amazon productNot to quibble, but aerial artillery spotting was well refined in WWI, mostly from balloons then. Eisenhower and Patton both were involved in the pre-war maneuvers in Louisiana where a lot of the interaction of the air corps, infantry, artillery and the mechanized forces were refined. Both of these leaders were strong proponents of aerial spotting.
