1917 B&W aircraft images
A friends relative was one of the early stunt pilot Sophie (have forgotten last name)..back then, it was a group of women as the men were at war. There was a box of images so I have been scanning them.
Aletta Hegeman, Clara Livingston, and others that I dont recognize. There are landings on the beach in Carmel, and group trips to Hong Kong and China...
Group Picture in Peking, 1917 Sophie is the light haired woman on the back right....

Very interesting photos - thanks for posting. That 'out of the window' shot appears to be upside-down and I wish I could recall the type. Hopefully someone will come along...

The out of the window shot - something that Greg Herrick has in his amazing collection perhaps?

Fabulous pics... :)

I think its a Ford Tri Motor?

The upside down pic is the Tri Motor cockyjester? I wondered about that but I didn't think they had that lovely pattern on the metal - engine turning is it called?
