  • Description

    A Caproni flying boat is featured.

    The aeroplane is compared to another, much smaller seaplane. The Caproni is huge! It has three sets of giant triple wings and a cabin to hold 100 passengers and luggage. We see views of the plane from the side. Men clamber over the wings. C/U of some of the plane's eight engines. C/U of propellers. Intertitle informs that the machine was specially designed to fly from Italy to America. Several men walk along a gangplank and through a small door into the cockpit.

    Was originally a Pathe Pictorial item.
