Aviators in "Choppy Sky"

This is from the June 14 Indianapolis News (evening paper) and describes the events of the second day of the aviation show. The legibility of very end of the feature article is poor, but usable. A list of the day's program events is included. There is a romantic sidebar of Orville Wright flying above the horizon at dusk to peer over the edge of the world to view the sun in its full glory. Colorful stuff. Down to Earth, there's another sidebar reporting on the abolishment of a patent infringement injunction the Wright Brothers had against Glenn Curtis. Another point worth noting. Here, in 1910, the pioneering aviators employed the adjective "choppy," to describe the wind currents. Interesting to see when words we commonly use were first used in a specific context - in this case, air travel.
