Does anyone remember hearing about Alan Cobham's 'Flying Circus' or what he called 'National Aviation Day' tours? Cobham and other aviators toured Britain offering short aeroplane rides and air shows. I'm trying to find out about how people experienced their first flight in the 1920s and 1930s. If anyone has any anecdotes, or remembers friends or relatives mentioning a 'joy-ride', I'd love to hear about it.
I'm researching the cultural impact of flight and aerial photography in the 1920s and 1930s for my PhD.
