Love the idea of doing the aircraft as it flew out of McCook Field. I 
haven't seen any photos, but that doesn't keep me from having an opinion 
:-) The plane would have had large Balkan Kreuz that may or may not have 
been painted over. I think flying from McCook Field in 1919 or 1920; 
markings would have been irrelevant, nobody to have seen them in the 
air. I think it likely they just got on with their testing. A fancy way 
of saying I don't know squat about your question, but worth pondering a 

This is likely to be another of those aviation mysteries that lack proof 
one way or another. Your guess is as good as anyone else's, so go for it.
