  • Short Summary

    Intrepid transatlantic airmen with their aircraft.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "From Dublin To Ottawa. Lt.-Col F.F. Minchin and Mr. C. Hamilton with their Fokker-Jupiter Monoplane, in which the Westward Atlantic Flight is to be attempted."

    Croydon, London

    M/S side view of a large single engine Fokker monoplane surrounded by people. Shot of people in front of the plane with the propeller above them. C/U interview with Minchen and Hamilton, who wear trilby hats. A man cranks the propeller using a wire loop on a pole, and the engine spurts into action. The plane taxis towards camera and takes off.

    Note: VHS Sleeve title indicates 'From Durrin to Ottawa' These are suave looking airmen, some of the aviation heroes of 1927.
