From the Paper:

"When America entered the war in 1917, aircraft production went into high gear, and new materials, engines, and aircraft designs were all created seemingly overnight. By the end of the war, planes were outfitted with machine guns which were synchronized with the propellers, the first bomb sights were developed, radios were installed, more was understood about high-altitude flying including how to outfit pilots for the cold encountered at high altitudes, and balloons were used for reconnaissance and photography missions. During the eighteen months America was in the war, aviation technology advanced tremendously, and it became clear that wars were no longer simply ground-based affairs, the skies above held infinite possibilities (Oliver 528-531). This would prove increasingly true during the fighting in World War II."
