That's funny- although it looks like some legit footage of Art Smith doing night loop-the-loops over the Expo, when they wanted to show him taking off, they just took some daytime footage and showed it as a negative! That seems so obvious today; I wonder if that went right over the heads of moviegoers in 1915? (pun not entirely intended)
