• Short Summary

    A new parachute is demonstrated at Nassau Airport.

  • Description

    Titles read: "NEW PARACHUTE" (Dublin issue).

    Nassau.

    At Nassau Airport, we see various shots of a new parachute in action. It has a cone suspended beneath the umbrella which makes the jumper descend slower than on regular parachutes. This enables him to choose his landing spot more carefully. The man drifts slowly to the ground and the parachute is gathered in by several men. A man (the inventor?) shakes hands with the jumper.
