At left, Major Eldo A. Peterman stands on the wing of an airplane. He stands with his back to camera and faces right. The Major also wears his flying uniform, including a parachute which hangs down his back. To the right of him, Captain George C. Sherwood sits in the cockpit of the same plane. He smiles as he looks towards Major Peterman. The plane is viewed close-up and from its side; it faces towards the left. Along the side of the plane, the number 4 is painted as is a silhouetted image of the California bear. The plane appears to sit within a hangar; the pilots' shadows cast onto a ceiling visible in the distance.
