"Aircraft Carrier 1922--Scheme 'B'" ... May 5, 1921 ... Attached Notes
Paper note attached to Bureau of Construction and Repair Plan No.006217, Aircraft Carrier 1922 Scheme "B". This note was attached to the original drawing No.006217 (see Photo # S-584-179) and apparently represents instructions given to the draughtsman in making changes to the plan following a meeting with Navy decision makers concerning this future aircraft carrier design. (The next version of this design is shown in Photo # S-584-180.) Instructions include "Arresting gear make 200 ft.", "omit planes aft", "three single tubes--?", and other notes. This list of changes may duplicate those shown in Photo # S-584-179-B and may therefore represent a parallel set of notes taken by a second participant in a meeting that provided instructions on modifications to Plan No.006217.
Note: The original document was pencil on paper (black on white).
The original plan is in the 1911-1925 "Spring Styles Book".
