Goodness knows what that was about. I thought you had misspelled your topic title. Note that the colors are Infantry blue and white.

I assumed it was some type of air show where guys in uniforms jumped out of planes but have no idea.

7th War Loan related I believe. "Attack" was used as a tagline for that war loan drive "Back the Attack", etc.

 

Looking around it appears "Air-Born Attack" was a demonstration team by the 'troop carrier command and army ground forces airborne troops', on behalf of the 7th War Loan in 1945. One June 1945 article mentions it had been to 24 cities in the US.

 

Neat piece

Thanks Adam for that information. Interesting. Very cool that it is actually military related (and not pure civilian). I know it's not worth anything but had to have it for the price.
