• Short Summary

    Unusual views of New York as we loop-the-loop in a biplane.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Aeromania! Jazzing about Cloudland. Some aspects of a big City that the pedestrian doesn't notice -".

    New York, United States of America.

    M/S of a man lying on the tail of an aeroplane, looking through a camera that is strapped to the tail. Two other men climb into the biplane and take off. We then see various shots from the tail of the plane as we fly over a seaside resort and a town; some of the shots are stopped then rewound (to look 'jazzy' I suppose!).

    One of the men climbs out onto the front of the plane while it is in mid-air and hangs from the wheel axis; the plane does a loop-the-loop.

    We then fly over the Gotham district of New York, and see the area from the plane as it turns upside-down. The Woolworth building is seen turning upside-down as we loop-the-loop. Various other dizziness-inducing shots follow; intertitle asks if there is a doctor in the house.
