    In case, if anyone is interested. The airport is Felts Field in Spokane, WA. USA, which the Spokane Sun God departed. The Sun God made the first round trip North American (United States) Continental flight from Spokane and flew over San Francisco and New York City, and landed back in Spokane, WA. The airport is still in use today as a municipal airport on the east side of the city. Thank you for showing this film. It is amazing what Felts Field in Spokane and Roosevelt Field in New York City look like in 1929. You should it to the Eastern Washington Historical Society, Spokane Historical Society, Spokane Valley Heritage Museum, and Felts Field Historical Flight Society. I believe that they would enjoy it.
