Early Johnstone Wright Brothers Plane

Here is a nice one! It is an early 1910 era black and white post card. It pictures an early view of an usual Wright Brothers style airplane. It has two wings. The upper left of the postcard has an inset of the flyer named Johnstone. Front of postcard is printed and reads "Machine In Mid-Air, 1910 E.J. Godshall". The Wright brothers formed an exhibition group in 1910 with Ralph Johnstone & Arch Hoxsey as stars. However in November 1910, Johnstone died when his aircraft's wings failed while he was trying to perform a "spiral glide." Hoxley would die a month later. Back of card is divided and postally unused, although handwritten. Condition-Good To Very Good
