THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA STADIUM AT BERKELEY This brief side flight was made on the spur of the moment, when the tour party decided to do a little sightseeing. A GLIMPSE OF THE CROWD AT OAKLAND (SEE, ALSO, PAGE 39) This modern airport when completed will cover 825 acres and will be one of the largest in the world. At present it has one runway 7,000 feet long and 250 feet wide. There is also a square area, part of which is here shown, now ready for use. This is 1,700 by 2,500 feet. The white circle and the name "Oakland" are made permanent by the use of crushed stone. These markings are a very great help to the airman who is flying cross-country over strange territory. Hangars, night lighting equipment, and other apparatus are being installed.
