50th Anniversary Day 7: Landing Signal Officer

Landing Signal Officers, or LSOs, are naval aviators that are specially trained to assist in landing planes on decks of aircraft carriers. In the 50’s and 60’s, LSOs used colored paddles to signal incoming aircraft.

The GI Joe Landing Signal Officer set (7621) was released in 1966 and included all the gear necessary to outfit your GI Joe Action Sailor: tan jumpsuit, yellow headgear, earphones, paddles, clipboard and flare gun.

Enjoy!
