He founded the Locklear Flying Circus, bringing his skills as an expert, ex-Army pilot to the new spectacle of barnstorming (another name for wing walking) to train a generation of walkers. I don’t do these things because I want to run the risk of being killed, Locklear said in 1919, I do it to demonstrate what can be done.

Army Air Service Pilot Ormer Locklear had a habit of walking out onto the wings of his aircraft to make in-flight tuning and adjustments. He parlayed this talent into a lucrative career as a stunt pilot in the Locklear Flying Circus. From there, Locklear moved onto Hollywood, starring in the Cecil B. DeMille-produced The Great Air Robbery. In 1920, he died in a crash during production of his second film. Of course, the prospect of death is part of the dark appeal for audiences and performers.
