Consider his firsts: the inventor of stall recovery, first man to fly upside down, first man to achieve terminal velocity (and live), first to master the loop, the Father of Aerobatics, the first to pick up a handkerchief with his wingtip, who played for the largest crowds in U.S. history … the list goes on and on. Step right up, come and see the Master Flyer!
