    In the 4th image, note the face painted on the backside of the cockpit
    armor; also to the right of the airman, in the background, is the old
    dirigible hangar that stood at Langley until it burned down after the
    war. Part of it's concrete pad still remains there today.

    Pretty cool. They didn't change much through their production runs, aside from stabilizer work.
