The show was sponsored by the Borrego Springs Chamber of Commerce and the Borrego Valley Airport Management. The two-day program, reminiscent of the great roaring 20's air circus, included skydiving, wing-walking, aerial trapeze acts, an air race, an authentic hot air balloon ascent, aerial dogfights, ground-to-air pick-ups, and a finale of an actual airplane crash by Cliff Winters, stunt pilot from Santa Ana, California

Hope Copeland, actress-publicist, re-enacts the possible stance of the airline stewardess of the roaring 20's - all part of the 1961 AERO-RAMA Air Show.
