  • Description

    Full title reads: "Hanworth. Britain is supreme in the Air - Machine and Man! 'Hats off' to Bert Hinkler, home again after shattering 'all sorts of records', including first flight across Atlantic in a light 'puss moth'.

    Hanworth Aerodrome, London.

    Captain Hinkler's small plane taxies across the airfield. A crowd gather around the plane as comes to a halt.

    He is carried shoulder high to a podium where he is kissed by a waiting woman - perhaps his wife.

    An unidentified man makes a speech of welcome to the record breaking pilot. Hinkler then makes a speech of thanks. He is particular in giving praise to Lord Wakefield, a benefactor to the flight.

    Shots of Hinkler standing in front of a large map showing his flight path across the South Atlantic. MS of him as he explains his route.
