  • Description

    Amelia Earhart arrives in Burry Port, Wales after her Atlantic flight (as a passenger) from Newfoundland.

    No titles.

    Burry Port, Wales and Southampton, Hampshire.

    Intertitle reads: "A welcome rest and then off to their destined landing place... Southampton."

    L/S shows a seaplane moving across an area of water at Burry Port; crowds of people watch from the land around the estuary. L/S of the plane landing at Southampton; M/S of the plane moving along the water; a small boat follows. L/S shows Amelia Earhart getting out of the plane and into the boat; M/S of the boat full of people as it passes the camera.

    M/S of Amelia Earhart, still in flying gear, posing with the two male pilots and the Lady Mayoress of Southampton. Boats are seen on the sea in the background.

    What follows seems to be footage from the beginning of the story, where Amelia Earhart is seen arriving by seaplane at Burry Port, where crowds of people are waiting to welcome her. Nice C/U of Amelia.

    Note: The name of the plane is 'Friendship'. Amelia Earhart was a passenger, not a pilot, on this flight, but she became the first woman to cross the Atlantic by plane.
