You mean the canvas jackets seen on many aircraft regardless of nationality that protect the engine and cockpit from dust and rain or snow?

What about them?

Those are just barrels. What do you want to know? Are you asking if they were used as part of a cover for the planes?

All ground crew used whatever was at hand. It isn;t anything special

Those barrels are obviously being used as "ertz mobile revetments" to partially protect the aircraft. I don't think they would do all that much good though.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

You cut the tops off of them and fill them with earth. A method still used today in field fortifications.
