People gather to watch air show commemorating 20th anniversary of Langley field, Virginia. Long line of P-12s parked with engines running on the air base ready for flight. Crew members rush towards the planes. Y1B-17 bombers, from 2nd Bombardment Group, move slowly along taxi strip toward the runway. One of the B-17B takes off. Nine B-17Bs in flight in echelon formation. PT-6 lays a smoke screen. P3-2As and PB-2As, of the 8th Pursuit Group, fly low over the field. Suddenly, one PB-2A dives and crashes into the ground, and burns. Smoke arises from the crashed plane. (Major Alfred J. Waller is killed in the crash and his observer, Sergeant John Johnston is injured.)
