    Seeking 1949 aerial photograph with ID number


      I am looking for a 1949 aerial photograph of the Verde River in Arizona that shows an area of springs. I have an Air Service ID number, but any searches I have done have come up empty. How does one do this sort of search??

          Dear Mr. Heilman,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          Most aerial photographs that were taken by a federal agency are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Cartographic (RDSC). Please contact RDSC via email at carto@nara.gov for information about locating and accessing these records.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSC. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
