The National Air Races, Day By Day and in Summary

SETIING new and wonderful precedents from nearly every angle, the 1929 National Air Races, held in Cleveland from August 24 to September 2, set a new standard which many subsequent meets will take as their goal. True, the same thing was said, and very properly said, of the Los Angeles races last year, but the Cleveland Classic, by sheer magnitude, diversity and completeness of character, and smoothness of operation has created a new pattern for outdoor aeronautical Olympiads.


Technical Aspects of the Cleveland Exposition

AN ANALYSIS of the exhibits at the National Aeronautic Exposition, held August 24 to September 2 at the Cleveland Public Auditorium, is helpful in noting the most recent tendencies in airplane and engine design. Although the airplanes in the exposition hall were fewer in number than those at some of the previous shows, the group was representative of the present status of the American aeronautical industry.

Airports and Airlines

WASHINGTON (D. C.)—A field inspection trip will be made by Aeronautics Branch officials within the next several weeks to check the few airports whose rating requests indicate that a physical examination is justified. In the majority of cases, however, it is stated that the data submitted with the applications, indicates additional work will have to be done before the airports can meet the requirements of the rating for which they ask.
