“A UNIQUE programme is being arranged for a meeting which is to take place at the London Aerodrome, Hendon, on Thursday, Sept. 26th. There will be the usual exhibition flights from 3 o’clock - weather permitting - of course; and at 7.30 p.m will commence the first illuminated flying fête.
Each of the aeroplanes taking part will carry a powerful searchlight, in addition to side and rear lights, and they will also be outlined with hundreds of tiny electric lights supplied from portable accumulators carried in the body of the machine. On the roofs of the hangars there will be
powerful naval searchlights to guide the airmen flying in the darkness above, and the pylons which mark out the one and a-half miles’ speed course will also be brilliantly illuminated.
