Abstract:

Above the battlefields of World War II, the simple Piper Cub aircraft served as an observation platform for the adjustment of artillery fire and helped form the concept of Army Aviation as part of the ground combat team. Since then, the aircraft have become more sophisticated, more rugged, and more powerful. This classic episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture series shows how the "Wings at the Tree Tops" have given the soldier a dimension of mobility which his foot-slogging brothers of 20 years ago would have found unbelievable. Witness the variety and versatility of Army aircraft and its integration with ground troop units. Footage is provided by the National Archives and Records Administration.
