This home movie captures scenes of the Easterwood children riding bikes in their rural neighborhood with visiting family before taking them to the airport. The family and their visitors arrive at the airport, English Field, where they pose for pictures, the guests board the plane, and the Easterwoods watch the flight take off. The terminal at English Field now serves as the Texas Air and Space Museum and is located at the Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport.
