1916: The Air War
Dr. John Curatola
US Army Command & Gen Staff College

Starting with the 'Fokker Scourge' in late 1915, the air battles over
Verdun and the Somme as well as the Zeppelin raids over England
in 1916 led to a technological and doctrinal race for air superiority.
These events had both a physical and psychological toll and led to
the development of the concept of 'total war.'

A retired Nebraska Air National Guard major general, Mark

RIO in the Backseat of a F-14
Joe FIVES
Former RIO, F-14
What was it like to be the Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) in the
backseat of an F-14 Tomcat? The RIO controlled the radar,
avigation, weapons and communications systems in the
Tomcat and provided a second set of eyeballs for the pilot.
The RIO was an officer but, as there were no flight controls
in the backseat, he was not a pilot.
