Abstract:

This report has been written to insure a complete analytical accounting of the 94th Fighter Squadrons participation in Cold Weather Tests at Ladd Field, Alaska, during the winter of 1947-48. It is the purpose of this narrative to describe all phases of the maneuver Planning period, movement to Alaska, the training period at Ladd Field, and the squadrons return movement to March Air Force Base. It is hoped that the relation of events and experiences within this report will be of immediate value to the USAF in determining future requirements in and for the Alaskan Department. This organization wishes to emphasize that any shortcomings described and difficulties encountered were those experienced during this units stay in the Alaskan Theater and may or may not have since been corrected.
