|Walter Bullock Flying His Bleriot|
|On the last night of the Early Birds Reunion in Rockton, IL, we were privileged to see moving
pictures, accompanied by a verbal description, of flights made by Walter Bullock in the two antique airplanes built by him. The Bleriot,
was built in 1966-67. It was as correct a reproduction as possible with the information available, except that it was powered by a 65 HP
Lycoming engine. Bullock said, "It flew very well and I performed at several air shows with it in 1967. It now reposes in our local
"Pioneer Minnesota Airman"
He enrolled for flight instruction at the Curtiss Flying School at Newport News, Virginia in the fall of 1916. Several well-known instructors were employed there, including Victor Carlstrom, Bert Acosta, Stewart Cogswell, Victor Vernon and Walter Lees.
Bullock flew tests for pilot license on November 21st, 1916 using a 90 H.P. OX-powered Jennie school plane, and obtained his F.A.I. aviator certificate No. 630, dated November 29th.
