Cool photo, very uncool wire run. Why in the world world anyone wind a wire
around the aileron control rod?????

Having owned an airplane and dealt with A&P mechanics, ANYTHING that could
possibly bind a control is a huge no no.

Airplane safety we take for granted today just hadn't been learned and
standardized yet in WWI.
