Photograph of Elmer Cooke at the controls of a Curtiss biplane at the Dominguez Hills Air Meet, 1912. Cooke is at center and is facing the right. He is holding a control wheel in front of him and his other hand is reaching for another control. He is wearing a heavy jacket and gloves, as well as a hat with ear covers and goggles. His plane is a biplane with canvas-covered wings and the engine is mounted directly behind the pilot. There are two men holding a long rod attached to the plane at left, and another biplane is visible in the distance at right.
