Re: Air Technical Index documents

I also research aerodynamics, especially from captured German documents and reports that were written by German authors right after the war. The DTIC still exists.

Captured documents were translated and distributed to US aircraft companies right after the war. As far as I can tell, there has been little published about the activities going on at Wright Field in Dayton, Ohio during the war and immediately after. They examined captured German aircraft through their T3 Engineering department. Intelligence was collected by T2 Intelligence. Captured German aircraft were given FE or Foreign Equipment numbers, later changed to T2 numbers, with both being visible in photographs.
