The Aerial Events at Mines Field

THE LOS Angeles Aeronautical Exposition and 1928 National Air Races, certainly the greatest series of aeronautical events yet staged in one city within a period of a little more than a week’s time, are now aviation history. Whatever else may be said about the management and accomplishments of the activities so recently concluded, it must be admitted that the general conception and final staging of the 1928 Air Races and allied activities was greater in its scope than any aerial presentation formerly witnessed in this country.
