    Full titles read: "So near and yet so far - Leaky petrol tank compels Chamberlin & Williams to descend after nearly 52 hours continuous flight... just under record held by Germany."

    United States of America.

    L/S of a single propellor aeroplane coming in to land on an airfield; as it touches down, lots of people are seen running across the field towards it. High angle M/S of people crowding around the plane as the pilots are about to get out. M/S and C/U of pilots, Chamberlin and Williams, standing in front of the propellor of their plane. They look quite happy, in spite of having their record attempt thwarted by a leaky petrol tank.

    Note: correct spelling may be 'Chamberlain'.
