Brookins Awes Wright Brothers - IMS 1910


I just loaded a delightful article from the Indianapolis Star's June 17, 1910 edition. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway's aviation show of 99 years ago this week was front page news. Everyone was awed by the skill of young Walter Brookins, including his bosses the legendary Wright Brothers, Wilbur and Orville. Great image of officials and the instruments they used to measure altitude. This one's special. Check it out.
