Camouflaged WWII Lockheed Aircraft Plant

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.

Crafty Lockheed… very crafty.

  1. I’d read about this before but pretty much forgotten it. Very cool. And it looks pretty darn effective too.

    I wanna do this to my house so the property tax people can’t screw me whenever I make an addition onto my property, like a shed.

  3. Small thing, you missed the h in “Lockeed” in the title, although it is spelt right in your article.

    Use something like this on a survival retreat but make it look like the woods.
