Actually, after WWII when the design for the super-critical airfoil was found in a Nazi safe there was no more need for this design.

SKY KING Was a radio then a T.V. show that had a giant influence on people of a certain age who had an interest in aviation! Also showed his niece penny as a great pilot (she and not her brother was allowed to fly the songbird!). So sky was also a feminist, and the show encouraged many females to follow their dreams into the sky!
