The first use of airplanes in World War 1 was for flying above the battlefields and seeing what the movements and positions of the enemy’s. There were many types of aircrafts during WW1.

Fokker Eindecker was a single seater for the Germans. Siemens - Schuckert was a single seater for the Germans.
The initial plane builds were primitive and didn 't have some of the modern day functions we believe a plane has, Both sides of the war were trying to design planes that could hold heavy weapons like bombs or machine guns, By mid-1915, the infantries were already getting some entertainment by watching dogfights in the skies, and airplanes became significant factor in success in the second half of the world war one. Innovations in aeronautics were made after ww1 and those innovations would be seen in full view during ww2 and beyond. today the effects of airplanes in ww1 are ubiquitous and helped further our

Rudy Klucik ASEN 3046-002 1. Explain why this person, aircraft or significant development has had significant impact. One of the biggest catalysts for aviation development has been the utility that planes and helicopters serve on the battlefield. There are an innumerable set of utilities that aircraft serve in terms of purpose, from moving military personnel around quickly and efficiently, to their integral function in activities such as surveillance and active military engagement. It is because of that utility that in the time that spans from pre-WWI to Vietnam that aviation has seen it’s largest leaps and bounds, but the in the times that span past Desert Storm, through the Gulf War, and into current day military operations in the middle east, that the most important development has taken place, the development of Stealth Bombers with precision

I'm a sucker for stories and especially emotional ones at that. The narrative writing of Janet Cooke in Jimmy’s World will bait and hook with a well-defined character and a strong, internally consistent struggle and these get me every time. Thus it's not a surprise that I really enjoyed reading the article. She opens with a strong contrasting lead and continues the theme throughout the article with beautiful imagery.
An American photographer, by the name of Laura Gilpin, worked for Boeing from 1942 to 1944 photographing aircrafts (“Laura Gilpin” Wikipedia). In one of the photographs that Gilpin took (Figure 1), during her time working for Boeing, she shares an image overlooking part of the aircraft assembly factory. This black and white photograph of the assembly factory shows multiple rows, and columns of aircraft wings ready to be put together. The position, and angle from which the photograph was taken gives the illusion that the factory stretches far into the horizon. Another element of the photo is the employees that appear to be dwarfed by the wings, and the factory space they are working in.
Bob Fosse fictionalizes and examines his own experiences and their meaning through the character of Joe Gideon in the musical film All That Jazz. All of this character’s actions, regardless of their perceived morality, or lack thereof, and potential ramifications, relate to his work as a director and a choreographer.
