Hay British Infants School 8
An air pageant, 1933

A brief but interesting reference from the school log book written on 18th September 1933 is shown above. This was a time of rapid growth and of great public interest in aviation, and a flying display must have been particularly exciting for the children of a rural area, since such events around this time often included stunt flying, wing walking and similar thrills.
