    Some shots of the Prince of Wales on tour in America.

    Fabulous aerial shots of biplanes flying over fields and towns. M/S of Edward, Prince of Wales, standing in the middle of a crowd, looking through binoculars at the air display. L/S of aeroplanes flying over the crowd, some watch the display from the roof of some sort of hangar. M/S of the Prince, in the crowd, looking upwards; he shades his eyes from the sun using his hat.

    L/S of a biplane swooping downwards over the crowd to land on an airfield. L/S of the crowd surging forward to have a closer look at the biplanes parked on the ground. L/S of crowds surging around two of the grounded biplanes. C/U of the Prince standing in a crowd, he appears to be listening to some kind of speech, he and the crowd break into applause.

    Various shots of a densely packed crowd - looks like they are in a city, probably New York. L/S of people looking out of an office block window, tilt down to show more people looking out of lower windows and a crowd on the pavement below. Point of view shot taken from a moving vehicle of crowds on a city street. More top shots of crowds in the streets, two grand looking cars - probably containing the Prince and entourage - force their way past the people, the police help push people out of the way of the cars.
