Wright exhibition team pilot. Born 1886, Kansas City, Missouri. Died November 17, 1910, Denver, Colorado. Before becoming an aviator, Johnstone had been active in vaudeville, performing as a trick cyclist. He and Archibald Hoxsey were known as the 'heavenly twins' for their daring attempts to break altitude records. The first of the Wright team to die, he was killed in a crash after he failed to recover from a dive.
