No air show would be complete without the Army’s crack First Pursuit Group from Selfridge Field. These flyers make a team which is hard to surpass anywhere in the world. They have a novel way of introducing themselves by forming the letters “A” and then “A C” for Air Corps. Their precision is excellent. Then they break up into their battle formation of “V” in echelon. Down they come in a crescendo of deafening tumult of screaming wires, howling propellers and snarling engines. Our hats are off to these flyers from the shores of Lake St. Clair.
