Sitemap. The Navigation Aids.

This is a research website. By its very nature, new information is uncovered randomly. It may cover decades plus more than one topic. Inserting those findings within existing stories [Posts] does not always move chronologically or in true sequence.

So, Dear Reader, Nav Aids were designed that allow you to “gather” pieces of the puzzle according to your interests and from different locations.
[This list and all examples below are graphics. They are not “live.” So even if the copy ON THIS PAGE says “If you click…” don’t believe it! Nothing’s going to happen.]

  • By Unfolding Story: The Research; The Research Network; Vets. Families. And Others.
  • By Eras: 1943-1945. Early 1946. Late 1946. 1947-1948.
  • By Videos

Also, many times, your “gather” will bring you Posts you have seen before. They appear not by mistake, but by relevance. Many Posts fit more than one part of the story. Their second or third appearances in different sections are designed to help connect the major puzzle pieces into the story of Veterans Air as best we know it.

The story of Veterans Air divided into seven topics listed at the top of every page in a Navigation Bar. They are FOUNDERS, THE BOARD, UNRRA, CREWS, AIRCRAFT, ROUTES, LEGALITIES. To learn details about those Topics, you click on the Name.
This red Nav Bar is located at the topmost of every page — and follows you as you scroll. You must choose a Topic and it will automatically take you HOME and “whisk” you down to the Topic you chose. (The “whisk-to-location” feature works for both this red Nav Bar and the Nav Sidebar explained below.)

This Nav Menu is self-explanatory.

Back to HOME: Topics> is the Nav Sidebar that works exactly like the red Nav Bar. It only appears when you’re reading a Post or are on a page with “gathered” Posts.

This is The ERA section.

Clicking any of these Find Out More buttons will open a page that contains a “gather” of all the Posts assigned to The Era you choose. After reviewing the story “Thumbnails:” you can:

  • click Rest of the Story to dive deeper.
  • use the BACK button to return HOME and select another Era.
  • use Nav Sidebar to visit any Topic

Enjoy the United State of America Air Mail stamps. They are just for graphics, but, yes, they are also all DC-4s.

This is the FOUNDERS section.

Clicking any of these Come meet him buttons will open a single Post about the Founder you choose.

Return to the FOUNDERS section with the BACK button.

The instructions above for the FOUNDERS Section apply in all the following sections as well:
