A Fokker F-10 powered by a Wright J-5 engine comes to a stop at Mines Field (Los Angeles International Airport) in Westchester during the 1928 National Air Races as a crowd watches on. Aviation enthusiast Dr. T. C. Young (center left) of Glendale helps bring the plane to a complete stop by means of a plow-like implement. This 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 during those years, there was significant popular interest in this event. The 1928 races ran from September 8-16.
