• Short Summary

    Aviator Jim Mollison says a few words and then takes off from New York.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "New York. 'Discretion is the better part of valour' and never was it more aptly proved, than in Jim Mollison's wise decision not to make return flight."

    New York, United States of America.

    British aviator / pilot James Mollison speaks to microphones "Goodbye - I'm coming back here soon..."

    His plane - The Heart's Content - taxis along the airfield. A hanger is seen in the background.

    The plane takes off.

    (Natural sound track only - No commentary)

    (Not quite sure how Mollison's taking off ties in with the title)
