In 1941 I was a clerk in the tech suppoly hangar at Langley Field. I watched some of the enlisted men I had attended Aircraft and Mechanics School with being trained inside the hangar with the Norden bomb sight using very crude trainers and aiming at small spots on the hangar floor. In 1942 they were about the only bombadiers the group had. We remember the pilots, co-pilots,navigators,etc but 1942 bombing victories are mostly attributable to enlisted bombadiers
