  • Description

    L/S of a crowd of people standing in a field, several biplanes are parked in the background - footage looks as if it is pre-1920s, probably early 1900s. L/S of a primitive looking plane taking off, a man walks into shot cheering and waving his boater. L/S of a similar plane gliding into land in a field, in the distance a crowd of people watch.

    M/S of four men and a woman beside a plane, the woman is helped into some goggles and lifted into the cockpit of the plane. M/S of a group of men moving a plane, they lift it by the tail and pivot it around, a crowd watches in the distance (once again looks like early 1900s). M/S of the same plane taking off.

    M/S of a biplane (looks more modern - 1920s?), the pilot sits in the cockpit, other men appear to be making final adjustments. M/S of a man signalling with a flag, pan to show same biplane taking off, several men assist by holding the wings steady. L/S of another aeroplane taking off in a field.

    Note: this item not edited in chronological order - could be cuts or out takes. For edited version with intertitles, please see records for - 21 YEARS OF FLYING (aka 21 YEARS OF FLIGHT) - also in G 1148.
