The Flyover, 1933


Chum’s logbook for September 13, 1933. Note the comment CC for cross country, then the added notation, stunt.

Piloting his Waco C, Chum performed above President Roosevelt’s spectacular National Recovery Act Parade in New York City–the flagship agency of the President’s New Deal.
