  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Various shots of a model aeroplane meet (in United States of America?). Several shots of the radio-controlled, petrol driven model planes flying, doing stunts and landing.

    In the Middle West of America we see fruit trees in an orchard being protected from insects and frost by having oil fuel burners alight at intervals between the blossoming trees. A large wind vane that stands much higher than the trees scares away birds.
