Description
A slightly elevated panoramic view of a runway full of airplanes at United Airport in Burbank. There are at least eight rows of three airplanes parked on the runway in the foreground. These are US Army Bomber aircraft, including the Curtiss B-2 and the Keystone LB-6. Beyond these there are dozens more smaller planes, closely parked in rows of six to ten. The finding aid describes these airplanes as "military airplanes". Beyond the airport there are widely spread houses and, on the right, mountains. The area above the mountains and the rest of the horizon has been blotted out. Writing in white in the bottom right reads "No. 2 ; Photo by ; F.M. Huddleston ; 4-26-1930".
