Aviators Jorge Chavez Dartnell and Charles Weymann try to cross the Alps between Switzerland and Italy by plane.
Title reads: "Brigue, 19th September. Chavez on his monoplane tries in vain to cross the Simplon".
Simplon Pass, the Alps, connecting Brigue, Switzerland and Iselle, Italy.
Aeroplane flying over pine-covered mountains, heading upwards into fog or clouds, unfortunately it seems to be quite hazy so the higher mountains in the distance do not show.
Intertitle reads: "... Weymann on his biplane is not more successful".
Similar shot of another failed attempt, this time by aviator Charles Weymann in a biplane.
Intertitle reads: "Brigue, 23rd September. The Alps have been crossed by Chavez".
Good CU Jorge Chavez Dartnell seated in his aeroplane, smoking cigarette.
