  • Short Summary

    Two men leap off the wings of a biplane - not very spectacular.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Shots from the cockpit of a biplane. A man in a parachute stands on the end of one of the wings holding on to the upright post. Same on the other wing.

    A man climbs onto the wing while the plane is on the ground. In the background are planes of the Royal Air Force (RAF). Shots from the cockpit as the plane takes off.

    Up in the air the men leap off, their parachutes open and we can just see them descending towards the ground. Aerial views of the air field.

    N.B. Confused material - some spacing in between shots.
