Crowds watch as Army biplanes take off at Mines Field (Los Angeles International Airport) in Westchester during the 1928 National Air Races, which ran from September 8-16. This air competition, comprised of a series of pylon and cross-country races, took place annually from 1920 to 1949. Due to the rapid development of aviation science at that time, there was significant popular interest in this event. Photo dated: September 16, 1928.
