• Short Summary

    Air show - various shots of planes passing, also helicopter and airship.

  • Description

    "Today is the age of the air. Flying in all its forms fascinates young and all - "

    Air show. L/S of crowds watching a fly past. Camera pans up to show biplanes in the air. We see the planes fly in formation. M/S of a Cierva C.19 Mk 2 - a small plane with a helicopter's blades on the top. One of the biplanes does a flip and flies along upside down. They loop the loop. A biplane flies up underneath a U.S. Navy airship.

    Various shots as the plane attempts to attach itself to the "mother ship". Good shot of an airship flying past skyscrapers in United States of America. Airship over New York (?) or another American city.
