Studio crew prepare to position some stunt trees while actor Murray Hamilton waits for his cue at the wing of a Jenny. Hamilton, later known as the mayor in the movie Jaws, played Lindbergh’s real-life friend and fellow barnstormer, Harlan “Bud” Gurney. The character appeared in only one scene in the movie, in which he and Lindbergh talked about their mutual love of flying. The real Gurney, who ended his flying career in 1965 as a pilot for United Airlines, served as a technical advisor on the movie.
