Plane flies toward and under a bridge - somewhere in countryside. Another stunt. Shot from on top of a moving train; looking toward rear; a daredevil stands on top of the train; and an aeroplane is flying directly over him; w/ a rope ladder hanging down. The man grabs the ladder and is lifted up and away. Looks like an escape/rescue scene from adventure movie.
