* Over all the World today . . . Texas is
in the Air! This war has focused attention
on the ideal training ground . . . the beau-
tiful rolling plains converted to airports . . .
the fine climate attuned by nature to avia-
tion development. In Texas are located
more flying fields than in any other state;
here are some of the world's leading air-
craft manufacturers, contractors, service
suppliers, and designers.
In this world center of aviation today,
thousands of men are trained for the air
from Allied Nations . . . Russia, China,
France, Canada, England, Australia, and
our neighbors across the border in Latin-
America. Other thousands are constructing
planes and components; others are guard-
ing our coastline. And out of this clear,
invigorating atmosphere will come men
with new vision to lead the coming era of
flight all over the globe.
Keep your eyes on Texas and the develop-
ments in post-war aviation that will come
from the Lone Star State. It is only nat-
ural that the great improvements yet to
come in aviation will center in Texas. In
the Southern Aircraft plant at Garland,
Texas, workers are still speeding Victory
through production. But soon, they hope
to build a new era of world progress
through aircraft improvements.
