The article “Barnstorming” Marisa Brooks is about WWII and how there were a huge number of planes left over. The government took these planes and sold them to the people for as little as $200 when it cost $5000 to make them. They sold the planes to anyone that they wanted because pilot’s license weren’t required back then for people to be able to fly a plane. This is when the flying circuses started. People could fly without being licensed began flying circus entertainment businesses. This matters to me because I learned that flying circuses were real and not some story out of a movie. This matters to the world because it shows the origins of the flying circus and why many people became interested in flying. This matters to education because we can learn how to be safer in flying because there were a few accidents here and there.
