  • Short Summary

    Plane arrives at South African airport, watched by crowds.

  • Description

    Lady Bailey in South Africa.

    Crowd standing in field; a few large buildings - aircraft hangars. 3 planes fly close together; high above; then 1 plane not as high. Aeroplane having just landed; taxis across field; 2 men are holding on to it and running along; trying to help slow it down.

    CU pilot (could possibly be Lady Bailey?) sitting on plane; talking to man on ground. People on ground.

    Lady Bailey is probably the wife of Sir Abe Bailey; who made a fortune from South African mines; he was also a soldier and a statesman. It is not apparent from this film which of the many women in the crowd here is Lady B.
