Everyone knows this photo, so few know who took it.


I thought this line was telling "Back then, photographers weren’t considered artists, they were just the operators behind the machine. They billed their employer for the work. moved on and more often than not, their images were filed away, uncredited in the news archives."

For anyone who read the whole article, and wonders (like I wouldn't have) there's actually a difference between wing walker and wing stander or wing riding. Oh my, talk about nit picking. But there's a difference and in general nowadays, people use one term, when it's more specific. (anyone actually care?)

This is a wing stander...

He is strapped onto a device.

Wing walker leaves the cockpit to "walk". Lets say, there are safety straps, well wow, that's nice, but who wants to fall off the wing? That's got to be some kind of jolt and being bounced around in the air, I suppose someone could hit the plane? Not my kind of sport, either way of labeling it.
