The Collection: Stories: Wright pilots clowning around

This set of images shows Walter Brookins, Frank Coffyn, and Ralph Johnstone performing various tricks for the camera: handstands, sitting on each other's shoulders, and so on. Griffith Brewer stands nearby, and a Wright transitional is in the background. A small crowd is nearby, with automobiles parked on the field.
