(image caption) From San Francisco Examiner, January 4, 1914

The amazing photograph in the upper section of this picture was taken by E. Carl Wallen, who was aloft in flying boat. It shows Beachey at the apex of his ascent in his seventh loop with which he broke the world's record yesterday. He was about 600 feet in the air when the picture was taken, and Wallen was some 150 feet away. The word "Beachey" which is painted on top of the upper plane, indicates the perpendicularity of the aviator's ascent.
