  • Description

    German Plane Wreck.

    Location of events unknown - somewhere in England.

    Opens w/ a bunch of children sitting on a hillside - looks like they've come from school - some wear uniforms. 2 little boys quickly sit down in front of camera in FG. Shot of all the kids looking down at camera - what they are probably looking at also is the plane wreck!

    Shot of the wrecked plane; w/ groups of men standing around it. CU wreckage with children on hill in BG! Pan on wreckage; w/ wings. CU Soldiers examining wreckage; RAF man walks up using a cane. More of soldiers examining wreck. Two women have their photo taken in front of the wrecked aeroplane! Pan on hill where the kids are. Soldier steps up to bottom of hill. Pan over to hill - some of the kids are posing; boys acting tough etc. Cute. Pan; looking across wreckage; at people - police; soldiers; photographer w/ tripod; a few more arrivals. Pan on wreckage w/ hill in BG. Policeman standing by wing. Another of wreckage; hill in BG - more adults on hill.

    CU part of plane w/ holes in it. Backs of 2 officers talking; by wreck. The 2 women examining wreck. CU soldier leaning over; looking at pieces. Another similar. Officer; looking at paper w/ guy in unidentified uniform. Pan to wreck etc. Soldiers looking; then CU - poking in w/ sticks. Don't know what they're searching for - in modern times it's always the black box.
