Id from the air was often accomplished using marker panels that were
brightly colored that could be easily Id by a plane traveling at several
hundred miles an hour. The panels were placed on top of key vehicles in
the column to provide recognition. These same panels were often also
used to mark the front line trace of friendly positions to assist the
aircrafts attack on the bad guys..
