This photo shows a Lear employee, with the help of a fixed magnifying glass, slotting a commutator, which will later be used as an intergated part of a complete aircraft automatic stabilization system. Such a system automatically flies the airplane instantaneously compensating for any deviation in the airplane attitude" as well as "Photo number 5".
