Wright Brothers

Walter Brookins - 99 Years Ago Today


Walter Brookins was the star of the Wright Brothers team at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's aviation show 99 years ago this week. In fact, 99 years ago today an article ran in the Indianapolis Star discussing young Brookins' (he was 21 at the time) relationship with the Wright Brothers. He charmed them as a small boy and the way the story is told, it reminds me of Formula One Wordl Champion Lewis Hamilton's relationship as a child with McLaren boss Ron Dennis.
