Brookins Amazes with Stunts

This package from June 15, 1910 provides a nice summary of the third day of the meet where Wright Brothers aviator Walter Brookins continued to astonish specators and birdmen alike. Brookins performed a series of daring arial stunts that thrilled the gathering. There is also a poor quality image of an official laying on the ground with an instrument that is reminiscent of a telescope which he was using to assess altitude for competitors. Another article describes the scene on the front stretch of the Speedway when a Wright Brothers plane was parked there and spectators were allowed onto the track to examine it. Finally, there is another article on the patent infringment lawsuit the Wright Brothers filed against Glenn Curtis.
