In this home movie from 1928, E.B. Hopkins attends the inaugural National Air Races and Aeronautical Exposition. Held at Mines Fieldâ€”now the Los Angeles International Airportâ€”from September 8 to 16, the carnival featured stunt shows, races, and prototype demonstrations. According to Time Magazine, 400,000 people attended the festivities, and $5 million worth of airplanes were sold. This footage captures many of the exhibition’s highlights, such as Charles Lindbergh’s performance with the Three Musketeers, a trio of stunt pilots, and the arrival of Colonel Arthur Goebel, whose transcontinental flight from New York to Los Angeles set a new record time of 23 hours and 50 minutes.
