Early aerial photographers

The Atlantic has an ongoing series presenting some amazing photos from WWI. One of the most recent entries features photos of planes, but also includes a few stunning air photos and photos of the earliest aerial photographers (#39 and 40). It is startling to realize how quickly the world move from not having airplanes to having war craft in the air with sophisticated abilities of both destruction (#41) and reconnaissance. Presumably the guys in aprons develop the film in the lab.
