World War II Confidential / Restricted Aeronautical Map of Hawaiian Islands

Detailed aeronautical map of the Hawaiian Islands, compiled by the U.S. Army Air Force Army Map Service.

The map is drawn from US Coast & Geodetical Service Charta and National Geographical Service Maps of the Pacific Ocean, a US Geological Service map of the Territory of Hawaii and other sources, compiled in early 1943.

The front side map illustrates the Hawaiian Islands and Midway Islands on a large scale, with profile recognition views and elevations, prepared to assist long range bombers and other military aircraft with visual navigation of the islands.  On the verso is a map of the wider Northwestern Pacific, with the various airfields on the map identified in purple boxes.

A scarce WWII survival.
