tabAir Force History 
August 28, 1908
The Army accepted Dirigible No. 1 after flight tests at Fort Myer, Va. from Capt. Thomas S. Baldwin.

August 28, 1942
The War Department directed Air Training Command to provide aircraft and equipment to evacuate sick and wounded American servicemen and women throughout the world.

August 28, 1943
The 482nd Bomb Group, equipped with Oboe, H2S and H2X blind bombing equipment, became the first radar-equipped Pathfinder unit in the U.S. Army Air Forces.

August 28, 1944
Maj. Joseph Myers and 2nd Lt. Manford O. Croy Jr., from Eighth Air Force shared an aerial victory for a Me-262, the first jet to be downed in combat. Maj. Myers was leading eight P-47s flying top cover at 11,000 feet in the vicinity of Termonde, near Brussels, Belgium, when he saw an aircraft flying low and extremely fast. Maj. Myers and Lt. Croy then made a 45-degree dive and caught up with the twin-engine Me262. Before they could fire on the jet, the German pilot scuttled the aircraft in an open field. He fled on foot, but was killed by other P-47s as they strafed the wreck to destroy it. Both Maj. Myers and Lt. Croy received half credit for an aerial victory.
