Dropping from a Kite Balloon 1917

A British observer drops from the car of a kite balloon, attached to the parachute which is hanging over the side of the basket. His colleague has already jumped and is on his way to the ground. The observations balloons were tethered to the ground, but if a sudden squall were to blow up, there was the risk of the cable snapping and the balloon drifting over enemy held territory. In such circumstances, charts and instruments would be thrown out and then each observer in turn would make what was known as the drop out'. Hopefully they would land safely, and not behind enemy lines. Date: 1917

Aerial photography in World War One Featured Print

Aerial photography in World War One

A illustrated explanation of the uses of and how aerial photography worked in World War One. Aerial photography was introduced as an additional means of observation, although its initial suggestion was met with varying levels of scepticism. A step by step illustration, accompanied by text shows how pilots would capture observational photographs of the land, which were then joined together to create a satellite style map.
1915

United States Navy - Atlantic Fleet

United States Navy - Atlantic Fleet in harbour, including the Illinois-class battleships USS Alabama and USS Illinois, distinctive for having side-by side funnels. An observation ballon is inflated and picketed in the foreground. It is unclear where this was taken, though it could be in the Caribbean or South America. Alternatively it is possible this is a photo of the assembled Great White Fleet, which conducted a world tour in 1907, returning in 1909. Date: circa 1908
