Good Will Tour, 1929

Iowa held its first Good Will Air Tour in 1928 primarily to help popularize aviation. This photograph is taken from the Iowa City stop on the second Good Will tour. This year was particularly successful, with 30 airplanes taking part in the tour, drawing over 250,000 spectators across the state. Pilots in three different divisions competed in performance for prize money during this tour.
