Star Item
  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    Item title reads: "Stunt Fliers Thrill Fans at Air Races".

    Illinois, United States of America.

    Low angle shot of three aircraft performing stunts - they loop the loop and leave trails behind them. Shots of the stunt fliers are intercut with shots of the crowd watching the display. A "Hollywood stunt flier" does some "stunning skyrobatics" - biplane loops the loop. Major Udett (sp?) the famous German flyer performs a stunt - he lands without the use of an engine.

    This print is very scratched.

    Note: American Pathe News item with original voiceover.
