During the war the Germans were deceived Americans
• As Americans fooled the Germans during the war,
In 1942, when the military forces of Japan occupied the island, located not far from Alaska, strategically important production equipment US forces were under threat. One of them - the assembly plant bombers firm "Boeing" - is now located within reach of the Japanese pilots. Meanwhile, the enterprise is the key to the construction of aircraft needed for the US military campaign against the fascist forces - the place had to be protected. The military came up with an original solution - mask production under the residential city, because nobody is going to bomb the normal settlement, if it does not bear any benefits.
Came to the aid of Hollywood - the military turned to the famous art director Detlev Jon Stewart, has received the "Oscar" for the scenery for the film "Bitter sweet" in 1940. An architect by training, Detlev applied the best filmmaking techniques in order to build a plausible street, sidewalks and trees. He erected over the plant a fake city, jokingly called "Wonderland." Bird's-eye view of war production was not distinguished from harmless town.
We suggest you look at this unusual location.
On the roof of the factory "Boeing" camouflage structures were in fact lower than the man.
It looked like a fake city from the air.
A street sign with pointers to the ironic "synthetic street" and "canvas Boulevard".
Employees of "Boeing" and Suzette Lamorou Verne Menion inspect one of the buildings. This complex masking may seem excessive, but it is reassuring factory workers.
"Trees" simulated by a combination of a light wire and feathers.
At first glance it looks like a normal day in the suburbs. By the way, unlike many other "houses", this was the only one built in full size.
As planned, the construction of the pilots had to take over a parked car.
Employees of the factory are walking through the streets of the city. Trees help to create the impression that girls ended up in a poorly executed computer animation.
View from above.
Thousands of factory workers gathered at the entrance to celebrate the re-production in April 1945.
This is what happened near the town actually is.
But it looks like it is the case today.
