Between March and September 1918 naval aviation in Europe transformed itself from a concept into an operational reality. By the end of the summer, final organizational adjustments had been made and command structure realigned to reflect the new combat reality. Eight stations in France conducted war operations. The Northern Bombing Group established several aerodromes and placed dozens of pilots with RAF squadrons to obtain vital experience. With its people, equipment, and organization finally in place, however, naval aviation stood ready to enter the fight over a front stretching a thousand miles from Lough Foyle, Ireland, to Porto Corsini, Italy.
