Is about to touch down after a demonstration flight. "Star of America" commanded by the Captain Van Wormer and Dave Bennett shows us a graceful landing at the very end of the flight. This might be the behavior of the "Golden age of air travel." It looks as if a ballet dancer is stepping on her toes. The name of this aircraft speaks for itself. It was truly a beautiful sight which we could not see nowadays.
