Title: Fairchild AT-21 Gunner

Designed especially for training of aircraft pilots and gunners following lessons learned from early WW2 bombing missions over Europe, the AT-21 was constructed of molded plywood to conserve scarce aluminium resources. Entering service in 1942, only 175 AT-21s were built, most by Fairchild but some by Bellanca and some by McDonnell. By 1944 most had been replaced by training examples of the actual aircraft in which the crews would eventually serve.
