Jim Ray Flies over the Washington Monument

Jim Ray flies over the Washington Monument in an experimental autogiro.  The photo was taken from autogiro flown by John Miller.  Although the original caption written on the image gives a date of 1933, the presence and the height of scaffolding on the Monument places this image in late 1934 or very early 1935.  NASM 9A05679
