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
