Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant camouflage during WW2
stories-etc.com...

During WW II Lockheed (unbelievable 1940s pictures). This is a version of special effects during the 1940's. I have never seen these pictures or knew that we had gone this far to protect ourselves. During World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a possible Japanese air attack. They covered it with camouflage netting to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air.

WOW. That is amazing. I never could have imagined that they would do this for protection.

I grew up in Burbank actually. I remember seeing these old photos, and several more just like them, at the old Bob's Big Boy on Glenoaks, across from Woodbury University. Its now some garbage cafe, but, back before they changed it around, they had pictures showing the mountains to the north, and the hills to the south (backside of the Hollywood hills, known as Griffith Park) covered in those "camo" tarps.

Ahhh, back when people cared about stuff...

Superbly ingenious!

Cheers for sharing - I'd never seen this before.

The ingenuity displayed in WW2 never ceases to amaze me

Thanks for bringing this back to the surface. I never knew they took measures such as these back then. Simple yet amazingly effective. Nowadays we spend a few billion on complicated missile defense systems which often miss the mark.
