  • Description

    Full titles read: "Another wonderful Flight - President Doumergue & 100,000 people welcome Costes & Le Brix on return from their 35,225 miles flight round the World in 337 flying hours... the last stage from Tokio [sic] to Paris was completed in 6 days!"

    Le Bourget, France.

    L/S of a huge crowd swarming into an aircraft hangar to welcome Costes and Le Brix home after their flight around the world. People hang from the hangar doors and it looks like complete pandemonium! A bouquet of flowers is held above the crowd and moves about - this could be where the heroes are but it is impossible to make out individuals.

    High angle M/S of a section of the crowd holding one of the aviators in the air; M/S from the crowd of the same. M/S shows the plane being wheeled into the hangar.

    M/S shows President Gaston Doumergue shaking hands with Costes and Le Brix; a few other men stand with them.
