|Date: May 31, 1931
||Location: Riga / Spilve
||Aircraft Known to be Involved:
A large number of Aviation Regiment aircraft, including Letov S.16s, DH9As, Bristol Bulldogs, Udet Flamingos (#89 and others)
- Among the many events and demonstrations, J.Indans flew a Udet Flamingo through a 'wall' of streamers, Blaus and Mellups
demonstrated aerial combat in Bristol Bulldogs, and Bernhards Petersons completed a successful parachute jump. Aerial
bombing was also demonstrated.
- It is estimated that 7,000 people attended at Spilve, and perhaps as many as 15,000 spectators set up in areas surrounding the
airfield and watched from alternate viewpoints. Regardless of the non-paying participants, 20,000 tickets were sold (obviously, many
as a non-attending donation to the fund for the families of aviators who perished) and approximately 16,000 Ls were raised by the event.
