Title: Weldon B. Cooke Testing His Sandusky Biplane
Author: Niebergall, Ernst
Description: A crowd of Sanduskians watch as Weldon B. Cooke prepares for a test flight of his biplane over the ice of Sandusky Bay. During February of 1913, one of Cooke's flights nearly ended in tragedy. Cooke crashed, breaking through the thin ice. Sanduskians pulled Cooke and his biplane from the frigid waters of Sandusky Bay. Cooke was uninjured and his plane received only minimal damage. In the background is a conveyor for transporting ice blocks from the shoreline to an icehouse.
