Dienstberger Band plays in plane with motor shut off.
An “Aerial Orchestra” is a musical innovation which has been started by a Delphos boy, Carl Dienstberger, whose musical organization includes two Delphos men, Richard Ulm and Wm. Wimmindinger.
While laying at Fremont, Mr. Dienstberger and his players gave exceptional concerts by ascending in an airplane and playing selections while in the air.
The plane would ascend to a good height and the motor would then be shut off so that the music could be heard and a selection would be played while the lane coasted.
So far as is known this is the first time in the history of the United States that a musical organization has given a concert from the air.
