  • Description

    No title, paperwork reads - HEATH, LADY Famous airwoman - leaves for flying tour of America. Chamberlin - the transatlantic Ace - who "takes his plane wherever he goes" - intends to shorten journey by taking off at Sea.

    L/S as an aeroplane is lifted on a crane while people watch from the side, it is suspended in mid air then raised upwards. Various shots as it dangles, they bring it down and position it on deck. A man unhooks the ropes. Very brief shot of Lady Heath in a fur wrap stood next to her aeroplane, another lady is with her.

    Title is shown here- 'Lady Heath famous airwoman - leaves for flying tour of America.' M/S of Lady Heath in fur wrap stood with another lady next to her aeroplane.

    Note: the part featuring Chamberlin appears to be missing from the item.
