Photograph of target drone in flight, ca.1950. At center, a small darkly-colored target drone is visible. The small cylindrical body is plain except for a small hatch near the front and a pair of cylinders that extend from the beak of the aircraft. The winds are long and flat across. Similarly, the tail has a small, flat wing parallel to the wings in addition to a curved, perpendicular structure. A single round propeller is visible at the front of the plane. In the extreme background, clouds surround the aircraft. The description of the image reads "Model OQ-19D Target Drone 200 Knot Speed Class".
