The Trolley Mission 1945

Aerial Pictures and Photographs of Germany
24 Hours After World War II


This electronic book tells the story of a sightseeing tour of Germany at the end of the European War. In May 1945, thousands of men who had, in countless ways, played a part in the aerial attack on Germany received their first opportunity to see the fruits of their labors. The Royal Air Force (RAF), the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and the United States Army Air Forces (AAF, USAAF) all played a part in the destruction.

The Trolley Missions were low-level flights over Germany between 7 May 1945 and 12 May 1945. Sometimes the Trolley Mission is also called low level mission, low level tours or Cook's tours. The purpose was to provide all ground personnel with an opportunity of seeing the results of their contribution in the strategic air war against Germany. Apart from the crew members, the ground personnel were the passengers. The special was that aerial photographs were taken during the flights by the passengers if they owned a camera. These pictures and photographs were not taken on military command. Because the photos were not military reconnaissance photographs, these photos are not collected in the military archives or at the National Archives and Records Administration.
