Wing Walker

Here is another illustration for Truman State University Press book on Notable Missourian Maria Meyer Fower (Written by Christine Montgomery).  Here she is shown climbing out onto the wing of her JN-4 Jenny.  A common thing for her, but this time was different.  They were flying through downtown St Louis on a particularly gusty day while attempting to whip up crowds for a show.  The intense wind made it harrowing enough that the pilot cut it short and returned to the open air in short order.
