  • Description

    Villacoublay, France.

    Full titles read: "France's "Battleship of the Air" - First and exclusive pictures of hitherto secret giant armored [sic] bombing night raider."

    Brief M/S of a huge bomber being prepared for takeoff; it takes off and flies away from us, over an aircraft hangar. Several shots show the bomber in the air, sometimes obscured by clouds. Point of view shots from the plane; the ground below is mostly obscured by clouds so we see one of the propellors and not much else! (These last shots are very white and bleached out; sequence seems to fade to white at the end.)
