Besides, barnstormers and stunt pilots had more daring than sense.  Lindbergh also proved to a skeptical world that the continents were no longer separated by impenetrable barriers but now could be easily visited by friends—or menaced by enemies. , and a makeshift landing field at Long Island's Belmont Park race track. , offered enough financial incentives to keep the fledgling airlines from drowning in red ink.  If we look closer, we find that most pilots lived through those heady days long enough to join the nascent air mail business—where those who survived barnstorming often perished.

The Wrights” Deadly Circus.  That could amount to $7,000 per season for some pilots, and that was enough incentive to convince performers to fly some hair­raising stunts.  But the brothers trusted Hoxsey's skill enough to assign him to pilot a flight with ex­President Teddy Roosevelt as his passenger.  In reality, the pair were friends, but their act never failed to thrill spectators.  Whatever the cause, Hoxsey's plane spun thousands of feet from the sky and crashed, killing him.  Johnstone met a grislier end than most of his comrades who died while performing aviation stunts.

Turning” Point.  But while fiddling around with a long cardboard box, the brothers experienced an epiphany that was to provide the margin by which they won the race for the first flight.  Together, the warpable wings, movable rudder, and front­mounted elevator to point the nose up or down allowed the Flyer to maneuver.  Even if they had no idea how to land the thing, the Wrights would at least start learning to control it in the air.  When it was finally put back together, it was Orville's turn at the controls.
