  • Short Summary

    London's new airport is opened - a new building replaces the old wooden huts at Croydon.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "London's new Air Port [sic] opened - Permanent building... replete with every modern convenience, hotels, post-office, even a bookstall... now replaces the old-time wooden huts in an open field!"

    Croydon, London.

    L/S of the new building and control tower at Croydon airport; we pan to follow the flight of a biplane coming taxiing to land. As the plane lands we see people rushing towards it; one man pushes a passenger stairway. Panning shot across the airport; another aeroplane is seen outside an aircraft hangar.
