    Titles read: "CAPTURED FOCKE-WULFE 190".

    Britain, possibly Farnborough.

    Various shots of people looking over a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Wurger German plane which was captured after a forced landing on the south coast of England. Several shots of the plane, now with RAF markings, as a British pilot takes it up on a test flight - "the Nazi fighter plane is made to disclose its capabilities". Air to air shots of the aircraft. The plane comes back down to land.

    The aircraft shown is a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Wurger.

    The location is likely (but not definitely) to be Farnborough, where the aircraft would probably have been sent for evaluation.
