My eyes were drooping, and I was fighting to stay awake. I was just about to doze off into nothingness when I heard a menacing beep. I immediately got up and searched for the sound, realizing it came from the radar we were guarding. I looked over at the green screen, and what I saw chilled me to my bones. There was a massive group of planes heading directly for the Hawaiian Islands. The day was December 7th, 1941 early morning. I got up and stretched groggily because of the long hours of sitting. We had been up most of the night guarding one of the most precious new breakthroughs in technology, the radar. There had been several prototypes, but this was the real deal. I had insisted on the radar being on because I wanted to know everything about it. My comrade, Joseph Lockard was an expert on it. As dawn was starting to creep up, we heard a beep. We looked around; searching for the source of the sound when we realized it came from the radar. As we stared into the depths of the bright green screen, we saw a massive group of planes headed straight for us. I looked over at Joseph and asked,” Should we tell the lieutenant?” He just said it was probably something they expected that we didn’t know about. I still wasn’t convinced and I kept on pestering him until he finally gave in. …show more content…
We opened the door and stepped inside to the warmth of the house. The lieutenant noticed and questioned us, asking why we came here when we were supposed to be guarding the radar. We quickly and anxiously told him what happened so far. After we finished, he suddenly laughed, confusing both of us. He said that they were a large group of planes coming from California and that was probably them.

I couldn’t believe that Russian operator. He was sending at thirty-five words a minute by hand, a rate so fast I thought it was a machine transmitting until I heard him screw up. He was truly exceptional, but most of his comrades were fast enough to make the best Americans sound like amateurs, sloppy and slow. It didn’t matter, though. Our equipment was so good that they couldn’t make a noise anywhere in the world without us hearing it.
Bombs fell from the sky from planes with white rectangles and a red dot onto one of the United States’ smallest states. A Japanese admiral of a fleet of both futuristic submarines and deadly warships, plotted to bomb the US’s only Pacific Island state after the Battle of Midway (Chambers, John Whiteclay. The Oxford Companion to American Military History: 2000. Print.). Isoroku Yamamoto was one of the US’s greatest opponents during World War II.
I will always remember the fantastic experience that I had in Cooperstown last summer. As we entered the ballpark in our car, we could see the majestic baseball field. People were already working on the fields, making the grass sparkle and the dirt smooth. We drove down the consummately paved road to the barracks and as they came into view, I could see several of them. All of them right next to each other, identical.

Today is April, 1944 and something weird is going on today. while my family and I were hibernating in our homes all cozy, the next thing we know is that we are taking into a truck with other people. I was so terrified as if an Arrow suddenly struck my heart, paralyzing my body. Although I do not know what we have done or who these people are I am just happy to be with my family. I really hope that goes fine until I figure out what is really happening.
At first glance it looked as if one plane was under attack. Little did we know, in a short period of time it would be four planes total. There has been some investigations as to how to handle another situation like this if one ever occurs. Giving what little we knew then and what we think we know now, could we ever really have a plan in place for something of this
Although several attacks were made against some of the batteries, they were not successful in defeating the HAWK system. The unit tested the HAWK system on its capabilities to detect, acquire or track helicopters. The Pulse Acquisition Radar was one of the few components used during the test. The system became popular because of the ability to track helicopters within one to two kilometers of true target position, making it a possible tool for the Air Force in Combat. Later on, the 97th Artillery Group with the contribution of 7th Air Force conducted an intercept test, which was successful.

For example in the story it states, “Suddenly out of the night came dozens of aircraft flares dropped by the German bombers…” Heatter continues, “Through it all, scuttling like water bugs, moved the little boats coming to the rescue” (Heatter 2). Showing how
Everything about this aircraft including the sensors and hooks were internal in the aircraft, and the exterior was slick and devoid of seems or rivets to minimize the craft’s radar signature.’ (listosaur.com) However this aircraft was far ahead of its time and almost the perfect aircraft there was another craft lurking in the shadows called the SR-71 Blackbird. The SR-71 Blackbird was a moch 3, strategic, low profile spy plane that was developed after the Lockheed U-2 aircraft. (listosaur.com) At the time this craft was created this spy plane could take pin point photos far beyond the average altitude of any craft developed at the time, not only is that impressive this aircraft was also moving at moch 3 taking these highly detailed and accurate
