  • Short Summary

    First flight for Marshal Slim barely gets off ground

  • Description

    Chelsea Barracks, London

    MS. Slim approaching camera. (Background shrouded in mist) MS. Slim boarding helicopter (Bristol Sycamore) MS. Slim in cockpit. MS. Cockpit door being closed. LS. Helicopter taking off. (Mute Orig. Neg.) (Used in A.K.C. 264.)

    Note: Field Marshal Slim had never been in a helicopter before and his nervous expression is great. The flight was intended for Shrivenham, but due to the thickness of fog, it only made it up to London rooftops before coming down again.
