SEEING AMERICA WITH LINDBERGH ANOTHER GLIMPSE OF BERKELEY Heading toward the hills in the valley of which lies the city of Berkeley, the tour party flew low over these University of California buildings. AUTOMOBILES PARKED AT THE OAKLAND AIRPORT These are only a portion of the vast number of automobiles parked at one side of the airport at Oakland, where a temporary stop was made. This was the airport used by the trans pacific flyers in taking off for Honolulu, and is a recent development. It did not exist at the time of the Byrd Plane Tour of the preceding year, when Floyd Bennett flew across the United States. This is an indication of the rapidity with which cities are acquiring modern airports and preparing for this new system of transportation.
