When World War II started, Tallman tried to enter the military as a pilot, but his application was declined due to his lack of the required two years of college.

Due to their heavy armament they are sometimes called helicopter gunships. Weapons used on attack helicopters can include autocannons, machine guns, rockets, and guided anti-tank missiles such as the Hellfire. Many attack helicopters are also capable of carrying air-to-air missiles, though mostly for purposes of self-defense. Today's attack helicopter has two main roles: first, to provide direct and accurate close air support for ground troops, and the second, in the anti-tank role to destroy enemy armor concentrations."

How We Made The First Flight / 1903 Wright Flyer Project, Wright, Orville (Introduction by Dr. Paul E. Garber) Federal Aviation Administration
70 Wright, Orville (Introduction by Dr. Paul E. Garber) Federal Aviation Administration How We Made The First Flight / 1903 Wright Flyer Project
Washington D. C. NASA / Federal Aviation Administration 1993 Booklet Near Fine

The first booklet is oversized, with cardstock covers and a side stapled spine. The second is small format with self covers and stapled spine. Book booklets are in Near Fine to Fine condition and were issued without dust jackets. The larger booklet gives an overview of how the first flight at Kitty Hawk came about. The second smaller booklet gives an account of how the Los Angeles AIAA group recreated a full-scale replica of the 1903 Wright Flyer. Both publications appear to be part of a 75th anniversary celebration of the 1903 flight at Kitty Hawk by the Wright brothers. "The Wright Flyer (often retrospectively referred to as Flyer I or 1903 Flyer) was the first successful heavier-than-air powered aircraft. It was designed and built by the Wright brothers. They flew it four times on December 17, 1903, near Kill Devil Hills, about four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, US. Today, the airplane is exhibited in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D. C. The U. S. Smithsonian Institution describes the aircraft as "the first powered, heavier-than-air machine to achieve controlled, sustained flight with a pilot aboard". The flight of Flyer I marks the beginning of the "pioneer era" of aviation."
