  • Description

    Unissued / Unused material -

    American voiceovered material.

    Cape Canaveral, Florida, United States of America (USA).

    VS From the air of American Polaris nuclear powered submarine "Andrew Jackson" during trials off-shore at Cape Canaveral it begins to submerge. GV From air, the choppy surface of the sea is held for 7 feet and then the tip of the Polaris A-3 Intercontinental ballistic missile dramatically breaks through to soar high into the sky - very good shot.

    (Comb.F.G.) Old record suggests that material dates from around 31/10/1963.
