    Thank you, gentlemen. This is sort of what I was aiming for with the last two pics:




    I like the pic because of the apparent movement that’s conveyed. You’d think that the image would be blurred, given the state of photography at the time. However, the plane simply isn’t moving very fast. Rather, between the speed of the ship and the breeze coming over the bow, the biplane had enough lift to raise its tail almost as soon as power was applied. BTW, the caption and pic were associated with Lexington. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was actually Langley. The F4B-1 was one of the Navy’s first radial-engine fighters.
