Bombing a Paper City With Sand Bags (Nov, 1928)
Bombing a Paper City With Sand Bags
A “HOUSE of cards” representing derricks and office buildings of oil fields in the near East was constructed as a target for airplanes in a recent British aerial pageant. The picture shows a fighting plane ready to drop a sandbag on the flimsy buildings. A direct hit will cause the paper structure to collapse as if struck with a high-powered bomb. Note the ropes bracing up the chimneys and derricks.
