By the time Chet arrived at the 1932 National Air Race in Cleveland, the event was getting under way. Below is a video taken from Chet's own home movies of the air race.
After the many still photos one sees of this event, a movie--even a jerky one like Chet took--gives a much greater appreciation for an event like this. We'd like to note three items:
Left: Mrs. C.H. Thompson, whose husband initiated the Thompson Trophy, sits in a car with her home in Painesville, OH, in the background. She also appears in the movie.
