In 1918, Meggers conducted a NBS research project on sensitizing glass plates and the effectiveness of certain aerial cameras. The glass plates were aerial shots of the Washington, D.C. area taken from a Fairchild aircraft. The flights were made from Bolling Field and a field near Port Comfort, Virginia. The results from Meggers' study were published in 'The Journal of the Optical Society of American,' 1920.
