  • Short Summary

    First Imperial Airways 'Silver Wing' London to Paris passenger service flight.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Air service de luxe. "Silver wing"- Imperial Airways wonderful triple 20 passenger air plane-starts service on London-Paris route."

    Croydon, London

    A steward or waiter on board an aircraft carries a tray with two beer bottles on it and some glasses. It's the first luxury passenger service on a 20 seater aircraft, belonging to Imperial Airways. There are men and women on board - looks very narrow, but fun. The aircraft -a biplane - goes to taxi round to the take off. There are some air to air, and air to ground shots, showing the aircraft flying over a city.

    Note: Early days of passenger air flight services - cosy and great fun.
