"Over cities…the aerial sentry or policeman will be found. A thousand aeroplanes flying to the opera must be kept in line and each allowed to alight upon the roof of the auditorium in its proper turn."- Editor Waldemar Kaempfert, Scientific American, 1913. Kaempfert also predicted that the aeroplane "is not capable of unlimited magnification. It is not likely that it will ever carry more than five or seven passengers. High-speed monoplanes will carry even less."
