  • Short Summary

    Aerial views of the Alps.

  • Description

    Aerial shots taken from aeroplane flying over the Alps; complete Pathe news story with titles.

    MS biplane flying. MS looking down from plane at majestic Alpine landscape. Title says height is 15 000 feet above sea level. More tracking shots going over mountains. Then closer shots of rocky mountainsides (or as the title puts it 'a dangerous flirtation with the snow-draped pinnacles gracefully tilted and alluring').

    Shot looking back with plane's tail in foreground, pan left over a sort of valley between two mountains. Shots going by very near cliffs. Another view from high above looking down then a closer shot again passing mountain face with much snow; crags sticking out of snow drifts. Various shots over the Alps.
