Hiding An Aircraft During WWII

When a country is at war, it is important that they are able to keep some secrets from the enemy.
America went through great lengths to conceal a Lockhheed Burbank aircraft during WWII.

Camouflaging this aircraft was important not only to protect the plane from a Japanese air attack, but also to keep the element of surprise about the equipment we had at our disposal.

The Army Corps of Engineers covered the plane with a giant net.
From the sky, the entire area looked like the typical landscape.

Kind of makes you wonder what else we might hiding under giant nets.
