147th Aero Squadron, Operations Office

This image depicts the meager accommodations afforded the 147th Aero Squadron while serving in the Toul sector on the Western Front. This tent was home to the squadron’s Operations Office in May-June 1918. At the time, the pilots of the 147th were fresh from training at Issoudun and had just received their first French-built Nieuport 28 airplanes. The squadron flew its first mission over the line on May 31, 1918. (U.S. Air Force photo)
