WWI era Female Aviator photos

Recommended Posts

These two photos were in an album I recently picked up. Lots of decent photos but no captions to identify any of the people or places shown. I believe the tall man on the left in both photos is F.Q. Wilson. I have no idea who the others are or where this was taken, but it looks like the woman is going to hop in and take the plane for a spin.

I'm not sure if this is the same plane, but the dark paint and stars on the wings on this plane are the only matches in the photos I have to the photos with the woman, other than one shot where the plane is rolling over and diving away. I don't see the same cowling latches on this plane though. The shapes of the wing tips and tail appear to be the same.
