    Titles read: "JETS AND ACES SHOW PACES".

    Wethersfield.

    Various shots of people looking at aircraft at a United States Air Station show. Among the planes seen are a KB-50 refuelling tanker aircraft, a Spitfire, a T33 Jet Trainer.

    Air shot looking down on Wethersfield Airfield showing planes and crowds. Crowds watch a flying display. A boy looks through binoculars. Formation of sixteen F100 Super Sabres flying overhead. A small girl holds her hands over her ears because of the noise.

    Formation of six F86 Sabre Jets flown by Italy's crack aerobatic team, the Black Lancers, come in low over the crowds. Formation of four Royal Navy Seahawk jets climb and leaving smoke trails behind them.

    Intertitle reads: "AERIAL JEEP".

    We then see various shots of the 'Flying Jeep' moving about on the tarmac (location of events unknown). It leaves the ground and hovers in the air. In later shots, two small rota propellors can be seen within its body. Looks very strange!

    Notes on file.
