WWI – The Great Waldo Pepper Meets Walter MittyJohn Morris
World War I – 100 years ago. The aircraft were the highest tech of their time, and parachutes were not allowed for Allied pilots. How would you like to go into combat in a stick-and-canvas airplane with performance not that much more than that of a Piper Cub or Taylorcraft? Some examples of these pioneer fighters could be seen at Oshkosh.
