Maybe WB and CM don’t think she’s all that cool anymore.

WB and CM are very polite and discreet, so we will never know.

In WW-I, my grandfather was doing pioneering work in photographing terrain from flying aircraft. Albert Chapman worked with him on this. After the war was over, my grandfather recommended him to George Eastman, who hired him. Chapman eventually worked his way up to CEO and Chairman of the Board of the company. He probably would not have progressed that much if he remained in the US Army Air Corps.

Here is a book my grandfather wrote about the work.
