  • Description

    Titles read: 'EXTRA!'. (Jumbo Jet in Seattle.)

    Seattle, United States of America.

    M/Ss of a 747 aeroplane (Pan Am) flying through the clouds - looks like a model rather than air to air shots of the real thing.

    Several shots of a 747 Jumbo Jet being made in a massive aircraft hangar. Good shots of plane under construction. Dark shots show the inside of the cabin with passenger seats in place. M/S of catering area. A man walks down spiral staircase from the upper deck to the lower.

    Several shots of an airplane moving out of a hangar and onto the tarmac, being towed by a small vehicle. Ground crew in boiler suits labelled 'Boeing' check over the plane. L/S of the plane; pan right to show 707 jet liner beside it. A little boy stands with his mother looking at the plane - he holds a model 747 plane under his arm.

    Several cars drive under the main body of the Jumbo Jet to show the enormous size of it. A lorry is driven under the wing of the plane. Aerial view of a Jumbo Jet on the tarmac.
