The new wing sundial combination design had it doubters at first until they received the complimentary flashlights so they could use the sundial on night flights

Might be the origins of the big wristwatch for pilots fashion .

Asking Hoskins to design a good all 'round wing may have been a mistake.

Very innovative Hoskins, but how do we reach the pitot tube for pre-flight check?
