“This is an original press photo. Jeep-in-the-box – The instant this big glider touches earth, up springs its nose, out pops a jeep loaded with soldiers. It’s a magic trick the enemy knows about by now, to their sorrow. But new glider tricks are promised. This is training attack at South Plains Army Air Field, Lubbock, Texas. Photo measures 8 x 10.25 inches. Photo is dated 09-06-1943.”
