• Short Summary

    Griffin and Mattern in Berlin after their Atlantic flight - a short stop then they're off to Moscow.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Germany. America to Berlin non-stop! Atlantic crossed in 11 1/2 hours!! Major B Griffin & Lt. James Mattern, U.S. World Fliers, set up 2 new records."

    Berlin, Germany.

    A single engined mono-plane taxies across a runway. The pilot gets out of the cockpit. People gather below the wing.

    Shots of the two pilots Griffin and Mattern. Shots of the two pilots with an unidentified man.

    Intertitle reads: "Only a 3 hours' stop ... then off to Moscow!"

    The plane moves off up the runway, ready for the next leg of its flight. (It is now quite dark)

    (Natural sound track only - No commentary)

    NB. Sound track doesn't appear to fit very well, just a lot of plane engine noise and one German phrase naming the pilots.
