Tom L. has access to an amazing collection of vintage photos. I'm always amazed at the stuff he comes up with. Love this pictorial story on pistols carried by aircrews. America pioneered the aircraft, and shortly after Americans took flight, they took firearms aloft with them. And while machine guns captured most of the attention, growing ever larger in the amount and the caliber of automatic weapons fitted to flying war machines, airborne Americans never lost their fascination with handguns.
