May 25, 1955: For an “air defense command story” published that summer, George Tames photographed various aspects of the operation at Andrews Air Field in Maryland and, 50 miles away, at the 647th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron at Manassas, Va. Here, the warning squadron sights a “target” by radar, and its flight was recorded on a plexiglass plotting board. Photo: Geore Tames/The New York Times
