Title

RAC56 Air Show

Description

George Mason, like many early aviators, conducted air shows as a means to both entertain and earn income. This undated poster promotes an air show at Moomaw Field in Elliston, Virginia, with Mason billed as the "Nationally Known Flying Salesman and Goodwill Ambassador". Rides were $1 on that October Sunday afternoon. The show was sponsered by Repass & Company, an auto body shop on Franklin Road in Roanoke.
