This scheme had been designed to be used at altitudes above 10,000 feet, while ASW searches were being conducted at 300 to 3,000 feet. In early September 1942, Proving Ground Command engineers conducted tests at Langley, and found white to be effective on head-on approaches, but too bright from above or the side. The PGC engineers recommended that Oyster White be discontinued, and suggested that, pending further tests, NG upper surfaces and White under surfaces be adopted. Meanwhile, the standard ODING remained in service, while the PGC conducted tests during late September and October evaluating the standard 00/ G, the newly recommended NGIWhite scheme, all White, and Haze paint (a recently developed paint technique that was supposed to render an aircraft in i ible when sprayed in different thicknesses and shadowing).
The ceiling over the B-18s from the 19BG were to take part in the first day ofthe exercise, but were unable to keep up with the faster 2BG B-17s, and did not intercept the Utah. However, on the second day three B-18s BG and seven B-17s scored 23% direct hits on the battleship. (USAF) 78 Chapter 5: The B-J8 in the Utah was 400 feet.

Not only was the Exercise conducted against the Navy; apparently, the 8-17 faction was out to si nk the B-18. Gen. ndrews and his staff had been eager to prove that th B18 did not meet theAAC's requirements, and that a formation ofB17s compared favorably, not only in cost, but also in performance to a formation of B-18s. I Lt. Leonard Harmon of the Engineering Department at Wright Field prepared extensive tables and charts comparing the speed and range for both bombers with differ nt loads of fuel and bombs during the series of attacks.
