Today’s featured image contains either a Douglas DC-2 or a DC-3 taking off or coming in for a landing at the Hoover Field located in Arlington, VA. While the airfield was in operation (1925 to ’41,) it was considered to be one of the most dangerous flying fields in the country.
Military Rd., visible in the photo crossed the field and the automobiles visible in the distance on both sides of the roadway may have have been parked there while the occupants visited an amusement park located right next to the airport. The newest vehicle in the scene appears to be circa 1936. Today the Pentagon is located on the site.
