    Item title reads - America's new airship. The R-38 - built in England - which is to fly the Atlantic. Bedford.

    We see men opening doors to reveal the large airship. A man climbs a rope ladder up to it. Various shots of the airship from the ground, the camera pans around and we see it from several angles. There is a shot of people working on the small cabin underneath. We see men in uniform outside posing for the camera.
