    New parachutes are tested in an American airfield.

  • Description

    United States of America.

    Various shots of a new parachute being demonstrated. Two men jump from an aeroplane; one with a regular parachute drifts slowly down to earth, the other with the new parachute falls fast towards the ground, with his parachute streaming out above him. When he opens the chute fully he drifts down to the ground and opens another chute on the way that acts as an extra braking system. A crowd of people watch.
