Wilson 1913 Biplane
 
The 1913 single place, open cockpit biplane was motion picture and stunt pilot Al Wilson's first effort as a teenager, a Curtiss pusher type that only gained 50' altitude and refused to turn. It was abandoned because of structural fatigue after a few hard landings.
 
 
 
Wilson 1917 Monoplane
 
Al Wilson's 1917 two place open cockpit, mid-wing monoplane was a Blériot copy built for Cecil B de Mille's film, "We Can't Have Everything."
 
Power was an 80hp rotary.
 
 
 
Wilson 1909 Biplane
 
In 1909 John H Wilson, of Middlesex PA., USA, built an open cockpit biplane with two chain-driven pusher props. It appears to be a Wright copy in essence, except for wings with one lateral rib, around which the surfaces are bowed in an airfoil shape.
