World War I Pilot
This is a picture of a World War I pilot, in front of his biplane. I find these biplanes interesting, as they were one of the very first really reliable, practical types of airplanes. After the war was over a number of these pilots bought their own biplane, and would travel the country, landing in small communities and selling rides. My grandfather told me when he was a little boy, one of these "Barnstormers" came through, and he was able to buy a ride.
