Description Hiller Aviation Building in Menlo Park, 1961. Black and white negative of a model posing while a helicopter takes off in the front parking lot of the Hiller Aviation building in Menlo Park. The model wears a sheer white dress that is being blown upwards by the helipcopter, exposing her undergarments (not unlike Marilyn Monroe in "The Seven Year Itch"). She has her hands on her head to keep her hair from being blown around and wears white high-heeled shoes. The helicopter takes off right behind her. There is a man in a suit piloting the helicopter. He wears sunglasses and smokes a cigarette. There are about 10 cars in the parking lot behind the helicopter. Part of a series.
