  • Short Summary

    Flying Ace Floyd Bennett gets out of a plane looking very ill; meanwhile Charles Lindbergh is on his way with an anti-pneumonia serum.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "A Drama of real Life (told in news pictures) - Famous Flying Ace Floyd Bennett, taken ill at Murray Bay, succumbs, despite another marvellous non-stop flight by Col. Lindbergh from New York with anti-pneumonia serum."

    Quebec, Canada.

    M/S of an aeroplane taxiing to a halt in a snowy field; a crowd are waiting. M/S as a man, presumably Floyd Bennett, is helped out of the plane; he looks very ill and clutches his head.

    Several shots, probably in New York, of Charles Lindbergh putting on his parachute next to his plane and climbing into the cockpit. A box wrapped in brown paper is placed carefully behind his seat - this must be the anti-pneumonia serum. C/U of Lindbergh in the cockpit; M/S of the plane starting off.
