    What are you looking for?  I have some 1940's air manuals somewhere.  My
    father was an Air Traffic Controller from WWII through 1970's.  I could ask
    him some specific questions if you tell me

    Hello all,
    I subscribed to this list hoping to learn something about the
    flashing-beacon system used to guide aircraft along airways before the
    advent of electronic aids to navigation.
    I have exhausted all of the resources at my library, most of them just
    two-liners or so.
    Haven't had any meaningful success with search engines either.
    Can someone help me gather additional information on this system? It was
    in use from the early to mid 1920s up to about the late 1940s I think.
    Any help appreciated.
    Charlie
