With this assignment you will finish your readings from Courtwright and Hansen as well as read an essay on airpower history. The Courtwright reading (Chapters 8-9) will involve aviation’s evolution in the post-WWII period. The Hansen reading (Chapter 6) examines the role of aero dynamists in making improvements to commercial airline technology. Finally, the reading by Leonard will explore the changing lessons learned as a result of the use of airpower in the Vietnam War.
For this assignment, all students will write three 3 page essays. The total length of all three essays should be 9 pages.
Essay One: (based on Courtwright) The chapters for this assignment look at how both the airlines and the federal government worked to reduce the influence of two factors – fear and fare – that prevented more people from using commercial air service. For this assignment, write an essay in which you explore one major effort the federal government undertook to reduce fear or fare, one major effort the airlines took to reduce fear or fare, and a third major effort to reduce fear or fare carried out by either the federal government or the airlines.
Essay Two: (based on Hansen) Write an essay in which you identify and explain (including indicating the significance of) three major contributions aerodynamists made to commercial airline technology.
Essay Three: (based on Leonard): Write an essay in which you explain the “traditional” interpretation of the Linebacker campaign and the “revisionist” interpretation of the Linebacker campaign. Conclude with a discussion of the degree to which the revisionist interpretations have changed USAF air power doctrine.
