  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    Titles read: "INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW IN CHICAGO".

    Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.

    Brief M/S of women in satin evening gowns, two with huge ostrich feather fans, decorating a stage with a golden female figure as the centrepiece - a symbol of the make of a certain kind of aeroplane?

    We then see men and young boys looking at an exhibit of a plane under a banner reading 'US ARMY'. A military man seems to be demonstrating the workings of an aircraft engine. Men and boys look at an aeroplane with moving wheels that are lowered and raised as if for landing and takeoff.
