Air to Air shot taken most likely by my great great grandpa Gatjen who fought in World War I in the US Air Force. This photo was found amongst a bunch of old memorabilia that my mother collected when my grandparents passed away.

Hello Justin, Great photo, but I'm not convinced it's a Tiger Moth. Not sure what it is but if you compare the engine cowling with other Tiger Moth photos, you'll see what I mean. Also the Tiger Moth had a very slight swept back wing plan. Regardless, I just love those old black & white photos. regards Bob La Roche, Kurrajong, New South Wales, Australia
Very rare and it was almost 100 years ago! Thanks for sharing. And also just a note, there was no US Air Force until 1947... :)
