About 300 aviation industry executives, engineers, and government officials, pose for a photograph, May 22, 1935, on stands set up in front of a full scale wind tunnel at the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory, at Langley field, Virginia. They are gathered for the 10th Annual Aircraft Engineering Research Conference, sponsored by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. Among the notable members and officers of that Committee, seen in the gathering, is Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh. Scene shifts to the flightline at Langley Field, where three women walk in front of several parked executives' aircraft, including a Lockheed Vega airplane. Scene shifts back to the Aeronautical laboratory, where a Department of Commerce light airplane is seen mounted for aerodynamic tests at the wind tunnel. Conference attendees line a steel walkway to observe the full-scale wind tunnel in operation. Airflows can be seen in the process. Attendees gather behind a protective screen to observe propeller testing, in the Propeller research tunnel. Attendees (including Lindbergh) are seen walking about, and conversing, outside the Lab. Next, Colonel Lindbergh is seen climbing into a Lockheed Vega airplane and then in closeup through window of cockpit. He taxis out for takeoff.
