Noah Brier links to some incredible pictures at Sociological Images that show the “efforts to camouflage the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant during WWII. The plant was essentially covered in netting made to appear, from the air, like a residential neighborhood. The aim was to keep it from being found by pilots and bombed.”



The post includes some close ups as well as some views from underneath the netting. Very interesting.
