“Army Air Forces Alerts” were produced by the Air Force testing & development center at Wright Field during World War 2 to inform service personnel of the latest technological advances in aviation, communications, weapons and ordnance, and to give “heads ups” on potential problems and how to deal with them. Segments featured here introduced adding Rolls Royce designed Merlin Engines (built under license by Packard) to the Curtiss P-40F, how to deal with bullet jamming in .50 caliber Machine Guns used in bombers, and the theory and practice of using turbo superchargers in aircraft engines, in this case, the Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighter.
