  • Description

    Full titles read: "The double drop - A thrill from the air - not to mention a 'plane and a parachutist."

    Atlantic City, New Jersey, United States of America.

    Several aerial shots of Atlantic City as voiceover tells us that a couple of lads in the plane think nothing of dropping a few thousand feet into the Atlantic. Air to air shots of a biplane as a man jumps out and starts floating to the ground. The pilots tries to beat the parachutist to the ground; the parachutist is tugging on the strings of his 'chute to pick up speed. The parachutist splashes into the water, followed by the biplane - diving straight into the sea!
