    "Flak fills the sky" is a cool drawing that explains the effect it had on airmen and airplanes. whenb flak explodes it sends out many small pieces of metal that can shred thinly covered airplanes such as the c-47 and the B-17. Flak first was used in WWI by the Germans. it was used in WW2 and also used a little in the Korean war. then ground to air missles took over the flak. the airmen had to wear heavy vests and/aprons to protect themselves from flak wounds. it saved thousands of airmen from death.
