English: USS Macon (ZRS-5)
Two of the airship's Curtiss F9C-2 "Sparrowhawk" fighters attached to her trapeze (left) and perch, during flight operations near Naval Air Station Moffett Field, California, 12 October 1934.
This image is a frame from a motion picture film, taken from an airplane flying alongside Macon.
The planes' pilots were Lieutenant Harold B. Miller (plane on the trapeze) and Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Frederick N. Kivette (plane on the perch).
Both planes have their wheel landing gear removed, as was generally the practice when they operated from Macon after 19 July 1934.
