    Titles read: "TAKE YOUR MIND OFF THE WAR!"

    United States of America.

    L/S of an airliner flying across the sky. "As a diversion to the war" we see a fashion show taking place on board the Trans-American aeroplane. Beautiful women model casual wear and swimsuits - quite slinky and sexy. Large hats are worn with the bathing costumes. Brief shots of women on board watching and the pilot turning around to tip his hat to a girl. When the plane lands, the girls walk down the gangway in their swimsuits to show them off to a small crowd of people.

    Cataloguer's note: judging from the style of ladies hats worn here, I would hazard a guess that this story is from earlier than 1940. Looks more like mid to late 30s, perhaps.
