The Legion sponsored a weekend performance of the New England Air Circus Association, which opened the season at Parlin Field. An aerial parade began the festivities, with seven airplanes flying in formation over Newport and Sunapee. Aerial bombing by local pilot Percy Osborne and balloon bursting were followed by the thrill of the day: Ensign Larry Ruch of the U. S. Naval reserve did twenty-one tail spins from an altitude of 6000 feet, breaking his own record. He also did Immelmann turns, snap barrel rolls, half loops and half rolls, slow rolls, hammerhead and whip stalls, and upside down flying. Newporter George Robertson parachuted from 3000 feet and also performed a delayed jump of 2000 feet.
